The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Trump administration’s request to delay litigation in a case over an Obama-era ozone rule, while the Environmental Protection Agency decides whether to repeal the 2015 rule.
Competitive Enterprise Institute senior fellow William Yeatman said the following about the court’s decision:
The court’s welcome decision gives a reprieve to the American economy from being unduly harmed by the ozone NAAQS. As a result, there is time for the EPA to fulfill its statutory duty by soliciting input on the social and economic impact of this regulation from the Clean Air Science Advisory Committee, so that the agency can render a fully informed decision on where to set the standard.
