On June 26, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected industry petitions challenging the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rules limiting greenhouse gas emissions, finding that none of the challengers had standing to bring suit. Coalition for Responsible Regulation, Inc. v. EPA, 684 F.3d 102 (D.C. Cir. 2012).

The petitions targeted EPA’s “tailoring” rule, which requires major polluters to obtain permits for their greenhouse gas emissions; the “tailpipe” rule, which sets standards for greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light-duty trucks beginning in the 2012 model year; and the “timing” rule, which limits greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources. The three judge panel dismissed the petitions, upholding each of these rules.
