Court strikes down EPA's interstate air pollution regulations

The D.C. Circuit Court today ruled that an EPA rule aimed at curbing cross-state air pollution overstepped the bounds set by Congress, in a blow to an Obama administration environmental policy.

The Cross-State Air Pollution Rule “stands on an unsound foundation,” wrote the majority in a 2-1 panel decision, because the rule requires steep cuts in emissions from the offending states. The cuts go beyond what states actually contribute to other states' skies.

The rule had been established in August of last year.
