California greenhouse gas law may stand: judge

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California's landmark law requiring cuts in greenhouse gas emissions may stand, a federal court judge in Fresno, California ruled on Wednesday, rejecting arguments by car makers that federal law should preempt the state's effort.

A spokesman for the auto industry, which had argued that California's law is unconstitutional, said an appeal is uncertain. "We're still reviewing the decision and a decision on whether or not to appeal hasn't been made yet," said Charles Territo, a spokesman for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.
