Bracewell & Giuliani's Holmstead says SCOTUS mercury decision bolsters argument for stay on power plan

Last week the Supreme Court ruled U.S EPA should have considered compliance costs before issuing its Mercury and Air Toxics Standards. Because utilities and coal companies have already implemented the technologies necessary to comply with the rule, how will industry operations be affected by the court's decision? During today's OnPoint, Jeff Holmstead, a partner at Bracewell & Giuliani and a former assistant administrator for air and radiation at U.S. EPA, discusses next steps for the MATS rule and explains why he believes the court's decision helps to strengthen the argument for a stay on the Clean Power Plan.
