AG: High Court Rules EPA Overstepped Authority
Holcomb, KS (westernkansasnews.com) The US Supreme Court ruled Monday the Environmental Protection Agency has to consider costs for utility companies when creating new regulations aimed at improving air quality. State Attorney General Derek Schmidt says keeping these regulations would have come at a high price.
Lona DuVall is president of the Finney County Economic Development Corporation and does not know how this will affect Sunflower Electric’s coal fired power plant in Holcomb.
The ruling was 5-4.
