PRUITT CHANGES MIND, WON’T DE­LAY EMIS­SIONS RULES

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

WASH­ING­TON» One day af­ter get­ting sued by 15 states, En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency chief Scott Pruitt on Wed­nes­day re­versed his ear­lier de­ci­sion to de­lay im­ple­men­ta­tion of Obama-era rules re­duc­ing emis­sions of smog-caus­ing air pol­lu­tants.

Pruitt pre­sented the change as his agency be­ing more re­spon­sive than past ad­min­is­tra­tions to the needs of state en­vi­ron­men­tal reg­u­la­tors. He made no men­tion of the le­gal chal­lenge filed against his prior po­si­tion in a fed­eral ap­peals court.

At issue is an Oct. 1 dead­line for states to begin meet­ing 2015 stan­dards for ground-level ozone. Pruitt an­nounced in June he would de­lay com­pli­ance by one year to give his agency more time to study the plan.
