Arch Coal Inc. Appeals Another Court Ruling in EPA's Veto of Surface Coal Mining Permit

Arch Coal Inc. is continuing its battle against the U.S. EPA and appealing a decision in which a federal court sided with regulators who vetoed a large surface mining permit in West Virginia. In a September opinion, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that the EPA did not exceed its authority when it vetoed a permit for the Spruce No. 1 mine four years after it had been issued. A notice of appeal regarding the judge's order was filed by Arch's Mingo Logan Coal Co. subsidiary Nov. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Arch argued that the EPA could only veto an already approved permit once it was issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers if the agency was presented with substantial new information. However, the judge ruled that the EPA had expressed concerns about the project throughout the process and the court could not conclude that the permit passed through without objection from the EPA. The high profile case riled energy groups, but also attracted broader support. Among those supporting Arch are the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, The American Road and Transportation Builders Association and several other industrial groups. The industry groups argued in prior briefings that the rule sets a precedent that disrupts certainty in the permitting process. The head of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, acting on behalf of the department and the state of West Virginia, has also filed as a friend of the court in support of Arch.
