  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) won a case before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Cir.) that will allow it to continue to regulate existing power plants for greenhouse gases if they are being regulated for other pollutants as well. The Court also vacated portions of the EPA’s Tailoring Rule which attempted to address emissions of carbon dioxide through permitting programs.
