HOWARD LEARNER STATEMENT ON CSAPR HEADING FOR SCOTUS

 

 

 

“The U.S. Supreme Court is likely taking this case in order to reverse the D.C. Circuit panel’s decision that is contrary to law and would further delay long-needed clean air standards necessary to protect our public health.  The Supreme Court has twice upheld EPA’s statutory responsibility to reduce dangerous air pollution.  The D.C. Circuit panel’s ruling is contrary to consistent Supreme Court decisions and should be reversed,” said Howard Learner, Executive Director of the Environmental Law & Policy Center. “We believe that the Supreme Court will uphold the EPA’s scientific and technical expertise in moving forward to clean up the air we breathe, reduce asthma and protect public health, especially for children and the elderly.”
