A US appeals court has decided to delay the review of President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan.

He has proposed to reduce emissions from power plants by 32% by 2030.

The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit announced the case, which was scheduled for a discussion on the 2nd of June, will now take place on the 27th of September.

It will be heard by a full panel of judges instead of an initial review of a three-judge panel.

The court states the delay on the decision has been made on its “own motion”.

In February, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked the plan and it is challenged in court by 24 states.
