Nebraska Pushes Back Against EPA

LINCOLN, Neb. Today Attorney General Bruning announced Nebraska is joining the State of Kansas, the Energy Future Coalition and the Urban Air Initiative in challenging a rule regulating vehicle emissions adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

EPA’s challenged rule, MOVES 2014, defies logic by forcing states to discourage ethanol use in the name of improving air quality. MOVES 2014 was adopted without notice or the opportunity for public input.

“Once again, EPA is using flawed science to burden Nebraska,” said Attorney General Bruning. “I stand with Nebraska Corn Farmers and Ethanol Producers in opposing this unlawful attack on our agricultural industry.”

The lawsuit is being challenged in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
