The Supreme Court heard oral argument on cross-state air pollution combining two cases, Environmental Protection Agency v. EME Homer City Generation and American Lung Association v. EME Homer City Generation. The EPA was appealing a ruling by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals that the EPA’s rule on air pollution that crosses state lines exceeded its statutory authority. The purpose of the EPA’s 2011 Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, known as the Transport Rule, was to protect “downwind” states, mainly in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, from pollution from other “upwind” states, mainly in the South and Midwest. These upwind state and utility and mining groups challenged the rule. Mr. Mitchell argued on behalf of state and local respondents and Mr. Keisler on behalf of industry and labor respondents.

Audio of the arguments was presented with still images of participants as they spoke. Justice Thomas did not speak. Justice Alito recused himself from this case and did not take part. close
