We are very gratified by the decision of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals today upholding EPA’s approach for reducing the state-to-state transport of harmful air pollution. This plan, based in part on recommendations by 37 states, focuses on power plant emissions that not only pollute local communities, but also can be carried on the wind to pollute states hundreds of miles away. This decision means that we again can move forward to bring cleaner, healthier air to more than 138 million people living in the eastern half of the United States.
