The U.S. Chamber, as part of the RMP Coalition, filed a motion to intervene in a D.C. Circuit case seeking to vacate a final rule issued by the EPA titled Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs Under the Clean Air Act; Further Delay of Effective Date, 82 Fed. Reg. 27,133 (June 14, 2017). If granted, the relief sought by the petitioners will force affected companies to incur costs immediately to comply with certain aspects of the Risk Management Program Amendments, even while they remain under review by the EPA.
The coalition consists of the U.S. Chamber, American Chemistry Council, American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, and American Petroleum Institute.
Catherine E. Stetson, Justin A. Savage, Sean Marotta, and Erin H. Ward served as co-counsel for the coalition.
