"White House Clears Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule"

"U.S. EPA is poised to establish a national registry for heat-trapping emissions after the White House yesterday completed its review of the agency's final greenhouse gas reporting rule.

The rule, which would set up an economywide program to monitor greenhouse gas emissions, is widely viewed as a major step toward informing future policy decisions on carbon dioxide regulations.

The White House Office of Management and Budget finalized its review of the final rule yesterday, according to the office's Web site."
