Supreme Court Declining to Review EPA’s Retroactive Ruling on Mingo Logan Mine Creates Regulatory Uncertainty for U.S. Companies, Harms Investments and Jobs

National Mining Association President and CEO Hal Quinn commented regarding the Supreme Court’s declining to review a 2013 U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruling in Mingo Logan Coal Company v. EPA that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the right to veto a Clean Water Act section 404(c) permit after it has been issued:


“By declining to review the harmful appeals court decision upholding the Environmental Protection Agency’s view that it has unbounded authority to retroactively revoke permits issued by another federal agency, the Supreme Court allows a cloud of uncertainty to continue to hang over any project and companies will lack the assurance required to make investments and create U.S. jobs.”
