An EPA proposal to scrap production caps on “glider” trucks that combine used engines with a new chassis creates an array of legal and regulatory risks for various mobile source sectors that go beyond a potential court reversal of the plan, assuming EPA finalizes it, industry and other sources say.

Connecticut, Maryland and the American Lung Association (ALA) are attacking EPA's policies to curb interstate transport of air pollution as inadequate, criticizing the agency's proposed rejection of Connecticut's petition seeking emission controls on a Pennsylvania power plant as an example of its failure to address the issue.

EPA is approving a Virginia plan for attaining the 2008 ozone standard that scraps emission control measures for the revoked weaker 1997 ozone standard, a move that appears to violate a recent federal appeals court ruling that rejected much of an agency rule allowing the removal of some control measures for rescinded ambient air standards.

A federal court judge on an appellate panel is strongly questioning EPA's technical findings used to justify its listing a contaminated drinking water site in Indiana on the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL), raising the prospect of a rare loss for the agency on such a listing.
