EPA in no rush to appeal rejected air pollution rule
The Environmental Protection Agency was not ready to say on Friday whether it will seek a re-hearing of a court's rejection of its interstate air pollution rule, a day after Administrator Lisa Jackson said the agency's next step was under review.
An EPA spokeswoman had no new comment on Friday. In South Burlington, Vt., on Thursday, Jackson noted that the Cross State Air Pollution Rule was thrown out on a 2-1 decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
She hinted that EPA and Obama administration were looking for avenues to appeal the ruling to the full court or to the Supreme Court, if the appeals court denies a re-hearing.
