The American Petroleum Institute intends to file suit against the Environmental Protection Agency if it does not meet its Nov. 30 deadline to set the renewable-fuel standard, the group announced Thursday.
API Vice President Harry Ng cited what he called the agency's "habitual, historical delays" in an open letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, saying the group "expects that EPA will have failed to comply with the statutory deadline within 60 days of this notice." He went on: "EPA's continual tardiness has real, adverse effects on industry. Obligated parties need this information ... to make operational, logistic, and investment decisions."
