PLF Case Updates – August 2012

August 2012

In late July, EPA held a hearing in Sacramento regarding the proposed particulate matter standard, at which members of CCTA and others presented testimony regarding the devastating effects those regulations could have on the trucking industry in California. A substantial number of eminent scientists testified at the hearings, stating that the regulations were unnecessary and were based on faulty science.

Ted Hadzi-Antich of Pacific Legal Foundation reports that the D.C. Circuit Appeals Court has rejected numerous challenges to EPA’s finding that greenhouse gases harm human health and welfare. Pacific Legal Foundation and others plan to appeal the decision.
