WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 16, 2010 – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and other business groups today filed a petition in federal appeals court challenging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to regulate greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from stationary sources through the Clean Air Act.

“We are challenging EPA’s ‘Endangerment Finding’ determination and focusing on whether they asked the right questions, sought the right information and whether they are meeting their burden under the standards set forth in the Clean Air Act,” said John Engler, president of the National Association of Manufacturers.
