  •  SCOTUS upheld decision of the DC Circuit Court (5+ / 0-)

    which also has a conservative majority. Will wonders ever cease?

    Asarco contended that the D.C. Circuit gave the EPA an effective license to set needlessly stringent environmental standards, rather than standards "not lower or higher" than necessary as it said was required under Supreme Court precedent.

    But in upholding the new standard, the D.C. Circuit said it lacked jurisdiction to review the EPA's rulemaking and that the agency did not act arbitrarily or unreasonably.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.
