U.S. Supreme Court Upholds EPA Rule on Cross State Pollution
Earth Day Network applauds today’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court which strengthens a protection that will reduce soot and smog pollution from power plants and improve air quality for millions of Americans. With this ruling the Court reaffirms the EPA’s authority to intervene when states do not effectively regulate downwind pollution. This is a major victory in the effort to ensure that all Americans have clean air to breathe.
