Even if it is used to try that - watch and I bet the corporations will try and end-run around states rights so they don't have to contend with a balkanized set of standards. Most corporations that operate across state lines HATE "state's rights" for that reason.

I think it'll be interesting to see how Arizona's maneuver plays out, if that is what they're trying, because the Fed will have to show that carbon emission control does have interstate implications whether or not it actually moves across state lines. IANAL but I can imagine some deft and twisty debate logic from either side.
