The regulations, which will be officially published Friday by the secretary of state's office, were assembled by the executive branch after the Supreme Judicial Court ruled in May 2016 that Massachusetts must seek emissions reductions across an array of economic sectors to meet the legal requirements of the state's Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA).
