Chesapeake Bay Foundation Submits Brief Supporting EPA

On July 20, 2012, in the case American Farm Bureau Foundation (AFBF) v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Intervenor Chesapeake Bay Foundation filed a brief in support of EPA’s cross-motion for summary judgment.  In its brief, Intervenor Chesapeake Bay Foundation argued that EPA should be granted its cross-motion for summary judgment because AFBF lacked appropriate standing, because EPA has the authority to issue Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) amounts, and because the vast size and scale of TMDL requires EPA be granted “substantial deference.”  To read Intervenor Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s brief in its entirety, click the link below.
