Engler/Harding/Extreme Right Lose at U.S. Supreme Court on Challenge
to EPA Clean Air Standards

The U.S. Supreme Court upholds the concept that
cost shall not enter into the setting of public
health standards for clean air.

EPA implementation plan for designating areas under the new
standards, however, is overturned and remanded for more
findings consistent with the statute.

Under Engler/Harding, Michigan had filed suit to overturn
the health standard set by EPA.
