Air Alliance Houston v. EPA

Hazardous Substances and Environmental Protection
Case Description: 

In December 2016, the EPA issued a final rule, the “Chemical Disaster Rule,” aimed at preventing releases of hazardous substances from chemical facilities and ameliorating their consequences when they occur. In June 2017, the EPA issued a rule delaying the Chemical Disaster Rule’s effective date for nearly two years. Supporting a challenge to the delay, PCLG represents three former regulatory officials with expertise in the regulation of hazardous chemicals that pose significant risks to workers at chemical facilities and to members of the public.
