Some good news for clean air and public health. The Bushevic-stacked EPA gets its come-uppance for a flawed policy. The ruling, written by Judge Judith Rogers was scathing:
"EPA's approach would ostensibly require that the definition of 'modification' include a phrase such as 'regardless of size, cost, frequency, effect,' or other distinguishing characteristic," Rogers wrote. "Only in a Humpty Dumpty world would Congress be required to use superfluous words while an agency could ignore an expansive word that Congress did use. We decline to adopt such a world-view."
