   A proposed compromise clean air plan between Midwestern states and 
   Northeastern states has been rejected by parties on both sides, making it 
   highly likely that the long-running dispute will be resolved only in court.  
   Some of the Northeast states, which are forced to cope with pollution that 
   blows in from power plants and other polluters in the Midwest and South,
made 
   the first effort at compromise last week, but it fell flat.  Russell
Harding, 
   head of Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality, said yesterday, 
   "There won't be any settlement because there isn't any middle ground."  Last 
   year, the EPA announced that it planned to impose a more strict national 
   limit on nitrogen oxide emissions, the subject of this regional
disagreement, 
   but this spring a federal appeals court temporarily blocked the EPA from 
   proceeding with that plan.
