Appeals Court Backs State of Texas in Ruling Against EPA


The 5th U.S. Court of Appeals sided with Texas and ruled 2-1 that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency´s rejection of a key Texas air permitting program violated the federal Clean Air Act.

Under the program companies could modify their facilities without additional regulatory review so long as any increase in emissions would not exceed an overall limit specified in the permit.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry called the court´s decision "a big win for jobs and a big win for Texas".

  What's Your Opinion?
  Times have changed...  
people understand a lot more about emissions and the dangers they entail.

So under the CHANGE of circumstances, maybe they should rethink? I agree with this quote from the source...
"does nothing to change the fact that approximately 100 refineries and chemical plants hold air permits which are not based on an approved state plan" Neal Carmen.
