Federal appeals court overturns EPA cross-state pollution rule

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington today sided 2-1 with more than three dozen challengers to the EPA’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, which imposes caps on emissions for Texas and 26 other states. The rule had been put on hold by the court while it considered the legality of the regulation. Environmental groups condemned the decision, while Energy Future Holdings, the Dallas-based owner of the state's largest generator of electricity, applauded it, as did a national electricity industry group. The Star-Telegram has a report here.
