Legal Filings
April 17, 2020

The Natural Resources Defense Council joined a coalition of groups that filed an initial opening legal brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in the case, “American Lung Association v. United States Environmental Protection Agency.” The petitioners contend that the EPA’s Affordable Clean Energy Rule is unlawful and any benefits to public health and welfare are negligible. They ask the court to vacate the rule, along with arbitrary new implementing regulation deadlines.
