RMP Coalition urges D.C. Circuit to review EPA's Risk Management Program rule

March 13, 2017

The U.S. Chamber, as part of the RMP Coalition, filed a petition for review urging the D.C. Circuit to review a final rule issued by the EPA titled Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs Under the Clean Air Act, 82 Fed. Reg. 4594 (Jan. 13, 2017). The petition for review urges the final rule to be sat aside because it is "unlawful, arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, and not otherwise in accordance with law."

The coalition consists of the U.S. Chamber, American Chemistry Council, American Forest & Paper Association, American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, American Petroleum Institute, National Association of Manufacturers, and Utitility Air Regulatory Group.

Catherine E. Stetson, Justin A. Savage, Sean Marotta, and Erin H. Ward served as co-counsel for the coalition.
