"Yesterday was a huge victory for Texas! A federal court of appeals shot down the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) power play trying to disapprove of a Texas air quality plan. The court ruled that Texas had met its requirements to keep its air clean and meet the federal National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) and therefore should not have been rejected by the agency."

The Fifth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals threw out the EPA’s decision to reject Texas’s plan calling it both an “arbitrary and capricious” decision.
