On behalf of seven community organizations, EIP and Earthjustice sue EPA for failures to update multiple toxic emission standards for refineries

Today, EIP and Earthjustice filed a citizens’ lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in federal district court to ensure that the EPA will set limits on toxic air pollution from oil refineries. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of a coalition of seven community organizations, challenges the EPA for neglecting to issue long-overdue safeguards for the health of all affected communities, including children and the disproportionately lower income, African-American and Hispanic residents who live in the shadow of refineries.
