Court Won’t Hear Challenge To Clean Air Act Rule

WASHINGTON (OfficialWire) — The Supreme Court won’t hear a challenge to a tough new clean air requirement limiting sulfur dioxide emissions.

The high court on Tuesday refused to hear an appeal from businesses and industrial interests involving an Environmental Protection Agency regulation setting emission levels of sulfur dioxide, a colorless gas with the smell of rotting eggs. Sulfur dioxide from power plant smokestacks can be carried long distances by wind and weather and has been linked to various illnesses including asthma.

  3. We in AZ have the EPA considering new regulations to reduce nitrogen oxide in the air (also called "haze") which will affect two power plants in AZ, the Navajo Generating Station near Page,AZ and the Apache station at Cochise,AZ. According to recent newspaper articles, the price to meet these new regs for Navajo is estimated to be $1.1 billion and for Apache, $170 million to meet these EPA "standards". Needless to say, these plants don't have resources of that magnitude available, as the EPA well knows. The Apache station serves about 150,000 million people, a third of whom live at or below the poverty line and cannot afford higher energy prices. The Navajo station would probably have to be closed, resulting in the loss of 250 jobs and higher energy costs. If the Apache station was closed, 1,000 jobs would be lost. It appears the EPA cares little about the affects of their overreaching would have on our state…..standard operating procedure for this draconian agency. Their fight against "haze" is simply another excuse to promote the "administration's" goal to close all fossil fuel plants, specifically coal.
