EPA rule on power plant emissions faces formidable hurdle in Supreme Court
from Los Angeles Times
Twenty-five years in the making, a new nationwide rule is set to take effect this spring that will sharply restrict coal and oil-fired power plants from releasing mercury, arsenic and other hazardous pollutants into the air and, eventually, into rivers and lakes. But the rule faces a final and formidable hurdle when the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments on March 25 from lawyers for the coal and power industries, who say it may be "the most costly rule" ever adopted under the Clean Air Act.
