Suing the EPA

“Environmental groups, industries, and possibly states today are filing their intent to sue EPA in federal court over the agency’s regulation limiting smog. Five groups represented by Earthjustice — including the American Lung Association, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the National Parks Conservation Association — will argue that EPA violated the Clean Air Act by not following the advice of their scientific advisers to issue a tougher standard. They will contend that the White House illegally intervened and allowed politics to trump the science. “The president personally engaged in an unprecedented level of intervention and interference,” NRDC’s John Walke said today. Today is the deadline for filing intent to sue.”
