Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's attempts to downplay the massive climate impacts of the Southeast Market Pipelines Project, a $3.5 billion project that includes the 515-mile Sabal Trail pipeline.

  12. District Of Columbia Seeks Review Of Ruling Striking Down Concealed-Carry LawRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 26, 2017 | Outside the Beltway

After that happened, there was an open question as to what option the District of Columbia would pursue with regard to the decision in that it had the choice of either seeking to revise the law to meet the concerns expressed by the panel, seeking review by the U.S. Supreme Court, or seeking a rehearing of the ruling before the full Court of Appeals.
