Devon Energy, Texas Sue EPA Over Ozone Limits Set by Bush

Devon Energy Corp. and the state of Texas sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to challenge the way ozone emission limits set by President George W. Bush’s administration are being implemented.

The lawsuits, brought in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, are among more than 10 filed since July 19 opposing the agency’s designation of 46 areas across the country as failing to meet the 2008 federal maximum standard of 75 parts per billion. Devon Energy objects that Wise County, Texas, where it has natural gas operations, is on the list.
