Court says EPA can't withhold documents on mercury emissions plan

BOSTON A federal magistrate says the U-S Environmental Protection Agency can't withhold
information from Massachusetts about potentially more effective alternatives to reducing
toxic mercury from power plants.

Attorney General Tom Reilly filed a lawsuit last year claiming the agency was refusing
to release information about alternatives to their plan.

The magistrate found that documents which Reilly's office argues would show alternatives
to the E-P-A's proposal were not exempt from the federal Freedom of Information Act.

While the E-P-A says their plan will reduce emissions by 70 percent by 2018, Reilly says
there are ways to create even more stringent standards.

1. You post great topics, Eugene.
Would you consider foisting them on General Discussion? It's not all politics, and more people would see them.

That also applies to this thread:
