"Appeals Court Tosses EPA rule for Indian Country"

"A federal appeals court today tossed out a U.S. EPA air pollution rule for some Native American territories."

"The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit unanimously ruled that EPA's June 2011 Indian Country New Source Review, or NSR, rule overstepped the agency's Clean Air Act authority.

The rule set up permitting requirements for new or modified major and minor sources in so-called Indian Country."
