West Virginia Attorney General asks appeals court to declare new EPA rule unlawful

The West Virginia Attorney General said Wednesday that he is co-leading a coalition of 25 states in a petition asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to declare the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s new rule unlawful.

The new rule pertains to the procedures under which states submit state implementation plans as mandated by Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey led a multi-state coalition last February raising issues on the then proposed rule.

“It’s either the EPA missed our letter or ignored our concerns,” Morrisey said. “Rather than listen to our advice, EPA has doubled down—issuing a rule that vastly increases the EPA’s authority while imposing compliance obligations even stricter under the Clean Air Act.”
