May 20 Brief in Coalition for Responsible Regulation v EPA

May 20 Brief in Coalition for Responsible Regulation v EPA

Ratings: (0)|Views: 379 |Likes:
Introduction: The suite of rules challenged in these coordinated cases involves what is
assuredly the most burdensome, costly, precedent-setting, and far-reaching set of
regulations ever adopted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. EPA’s
Endangerment Rule, challenged here, is the cornerstone of EPA’s decision to regulate
a new category of emissions under the Clean Air Act. As demonstrated below, the
Rule is the product of serious legal, evidentiary, and procedural errors. These errors
can fairly be said to reflect EPA’s rush to judgment and its decision to disregard
statutory text, settled rules of construction, and the specific terms of the Supreme
Court’s decision and remand in Massachusetts v. EPA, 549 U.S. 497 (2007). The errors
are further reflected in the Agency’s remarkable and implausible contention that the
Act must be read to compel a chain reaction of multiple rules leading to what it
frankly concedes are “absurd” results, contrary to Congress’s intent.
