Inside EPA recently reported on the Supreme Court’s delay in ruling on state and industry requests to stay the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Good Neighbor Plan (GNP) ozone rule.
Speaking on a December 5 Environmental Law Monitor podcast, Brittany Pemberton said that the high court’s decision “could shake out in a number of ways.”
Pemberton noted that there are several different stay applications before the court, and these differ in scope. For example, the applications from the steel sector and natural gas pipeline sectors ask for a stay of the GNP as applied to those industries.
But the applications of the three states, and of the American Forest and Paper Association (AFPA) and affiliated industry groups, ask for a full stay of the rule, for all industries.
