States Sue EPA Clean Air Act Regulations

December 2, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] A coalition of 14 states, the District of Columbia and numerous local governments recently filed papers in federal court seeking to block implementation of a change to Clean Air Act regulations that will allow vast amounts of additional industrial pollution into the nation’s skies. The new rule written by the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is scheduled to take effect December 26. In their request for a stay, the states argue that the new rule violates the plain language of the Clean Air Act, conflicts with Congressional intent, and contradicts long-standing court rulings. Renewable energy proponets have seen these recent rollbacks as another way the Bush administration maintains an uneven playing field favoring the fossil fuel industries, while at the same time allowing increased levels of pullution.
