D.C. Circuit Extends Deadline To Appeal Biogenic Carbon Decision
On August 26, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit granted a petition by several industry groups, including the American Forest & Paper Association and the National Alliance of Forest Owners, for an extension to file an appeal to the court's recent decision to vacate the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) rule temporarily exempting biogenic sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from new GHG permitting requirements. For more information on the decision issued in July, please visit online. Groups will now have until 30 days after the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether it will consider several lawsuits challenging EPA's GHG regulations to appeal this biogenic carbon decision.
