A federal appeals court ruled Monday that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) violated the Clean Air Act by rejecting a Texas program for approving air permits. The ruling by a divided three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals concerns the EPA's 2010 rejection of the state's flexible permitting program.

By a 2-1 vote, the 5th Circuit struck down the EPA's rejection of the flexible permitting program and told the EPA to reconsider it.
