"Court Delays EPA Mercury Rule Case While Trump Reviews"

"A federal court delayed its case Thursday regarding a major Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) air pollution rule.

In a victory for the Trump administration, the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled late Thursday that the case will be on hold while the administration decides whether to repeal the regulation or defend it in court.

At issue is a rule the Obama administration wrote last year to fix a problem with the cost-benefit analysis regarding 2012 Mercury and Air Toxics Standards rule, limiting pollutants from coal-fired power plants.

The Supreme Court decided against the underlying rule in 2015, but a lower court gave the EPA an opportunity to fix the cost-benefit analysis."
