Potential EPA ‘sue and settle’ lawsuit could mean new greenhouse regulations

Seven states sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Chief Administrator Lisa Jackson Tuesday, criticizing the agency for failing to issue new rules regarding methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas which they argue may be linked to climate change.

The states now contend that the agency missed a legal deadline to determine whether new methane regulations are needed. The states said they are open to exploring solutions outside litigation.

If the EPA does not move to include rules on methane in its pollution rules for the oil and gas industry within 60 days, the states — New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Maryland, Rhode Island and Delaware — will sue the agency in federal court to force them to do so.

  1. As if every thing isn't bad enough because of over regulation now these Liberal states want to make it worse on the rest of the country. What a bunch of crap!

    • they keep regulating and no-one will be working, and they just don't see it. Oh and by the way even NASA scientists say global warming is a hoax

    Lisa Jackson is a Criminal dating back to her days in the Jon Corzine administration, if not before. She is dangerous, sanctimonious, judgmental, and , like her boss, thinks she's always the smartest person in the room. She is another in this administration who "earned" her position by Affirmative Action, not be competence. Why she remains under the radar, given her past, is beyond me.
