EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AP50 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Transport Rule (CAIR Replacement Rule) 
Abstract: On May 12, 2005, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated the Clean Air Interstate Rule, commonly known as CAIR (70 FR 25162). The CAIR used a cap and trade approach to reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. On July 11, 2008, the D.C. Circuit issued an opinion finding parts of the CAIR unlawful and vacating the rule. On December 23, the D.C. Circuit issued a decision on the petitions for rehearing of the July 11 decision. The court granted EPA's petition for rehearing to the extent that it remanded the cases without vacatur of the CAIR. This ruling means that the CAIR remains in place, but that EPA is obligated to promulgate another rule under Clean Air Act section 110(a)(2)(D) consistent with the court's July 11 opinion. This action would fulfill our obligation to develop a rule consistent with the July 11, 2008, and December 23, 2008, D.C. Court decisions.
