Oral Arguments Heard In Remining / Western Mine Case  Posted: January 30, 2004
Oral argument was heard before a panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati in the case of Citizens Coal Council & Kentucky Resources Council v. EPA, in which we have challenged a 2002 EPA rulemaking that created two new categories of coal mining water pollution limits - one for remining operations and the other for western coal mines. CCC and KRC are seeking to have the rules, which eliminate enforceable pollution limits in favor of unenforceable and unpredictable "best management practices", vacated and remanded to the agency.
