March 14, 2011
A House Energy and Commerce Committee panel has passed a bill that would prevent EPA from regulating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions using its existing Clean Air Act authority. The bill, introduced by Representative Fred Upton (R., MI), would change a legal precedent set in 2007 by the U.S. Supreme Court. Senator James Inhofe (R., OK) has introduced a similar bill in the Senate. The bills are an attempt by House and Senate Republicans to provide a remedy for one of industry’s biggest regulatory concerns this year—that permit and other requirements stemming from EPA’s GHG regulations will create legal uncertainties, stymie growth, and discourage investment in the U.S....

Industry aims to preempt a move by the EU to formally adopt a policy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 25% from 1990 levels by 2020, compared with the current target to reduce GHGs 20% by 2020. The commission concludes that reducing the bloc’s carbon emissions by 25% by 2020 would be more cost effective policy in the long term. Cefic says an increased target would be counterproductive because it creates uncertainties in an already unstable, post-crisis business environment.

A federal appeals court has rejected a bid by Texas state officials who sought a legal stay that would have prevented EPA’s takeover of the state’s air permitting program until the state’s legal challenge is decided. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia had granted a temporary stay but on January 12 ruled that Texas did not meet the “stringent standards required for a stay pending court review.” Texas is challenging EPA’s move to take over the air permitting program, saying federal officials did not meet Clean Air Act requirements for notice and comment....
