Supreme Court Rejects Case Challenging EPA Pollution Rules

Lobbyists were denied a case before the Supreme Court to refute the EPA’s regulations of air pollution.

The United States Supreme Court has rejected a challenge by oil lobbyists disputing the Environmental Protection Agency’s rules on air pollution.

The 2010 standard in question tightened regulations on short-term nitrogen dioxide pollution increases near roads. Thus, because the Supreme Court rejected the case, this regulation will stay in place.

The American Petroleum Institute was one of the lobbyists, claiming that there was not enough scientific evidence found to prove the EPA regulation was justified. The EPA, however, justified the rule though scientific data supporting claims that the people with asthma would be affected by the presence of nitrogen dioxide.

The American Petroleum Institute said the EPA should only have authority to regulate based on actual health threats.
