EPA MOVES TO EASE INDUSTRIAL AIR POLLUTION RULES

The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing industrial air pollution rules that will allow U.S. oil refineries and other industrial plants to increase air emissions without prior government approval.

EPA would have 45 days and states 90 days to reject the application.
