Rockefeller Statement on U.S. Appeals Court Decision on EPA Cross State Air Pollution Rule

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Senator Jay Rockefeller today issued the following statement on the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to overturn the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Cross State Air Pollution Rule.

"The EPA, like all government agencies, must make sure that its rulemakings fully comply with the law. EPA is required to issue a rule that implements the Good Neighbor provision of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments to protect downwind states from pollution blown in from other states and protect public health, but must do so without overreaching its authority."
