Breaking: US Supreme Court overturned the EPA’s air quality rule

The US Supreme Court overturned today the air quality rule that was issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Obama Administration, holding that the EPA did not properly consider the costs of the regulation.

“The Supreme Court dealt a blow to the Obama administration’s landmark air quality rule on Monday, ruling the Environmental Protection Agency did not properly consider the costs of the regulation.

In a 5-4 ruling, the justices ruled that the EPA should have taken into account the costs to utilities and others in the power sector before even deciding whether to set limits for the toxic air pollutants it regulated in 2011.”
