New York state attorney general Eric Schneiderman says his office is preparing to file a lawsuit against the U.S. federal government for failure to conduct an environmental review of potential harmful effects of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. The lawsuit targets regulations proposed by the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC; West Trenton, NJ) allowing natural gas development in the area. Schneiderman says the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires environmental review of regulations that pose harm to human health or the environment....

U.S. EPA says it will delay the implementation schedule for its final rule limiting air toxic emissions from industrial boilers and is seeking additional public comment through July 15. EPA’s initial proposal for revised Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards for industrial boilers had prompted intense criticism from industry and some lawmakers, resulting in substantial changes in the final rule. The complexity of those changes warrant additional opportunity for public comment, sources say. At issue are provisions in the 1990 Clean Air Act amendments that require EPA to reassess MACT standards every 10 years to determine if further restrictions are necessary to protect public health or the environment. EPA in 2006 determined no further restrictions were necessary, but environmental groups successfully sued the agency on the grounds the Bush Administration had not proven further controls were unnecessary....
