State to Challenge Bush Pollution Rules

Sep 22, 2003 1:38 pm US/Central
SPRINGFIELD (AP) Illinois officials are planning a legal challenge to President Bush's change in anti-pollution rules.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and the state attorney general said today they will file a petition to block the rule change.

State EPA Director Renee Cipriano says the new rules would threaten air quality.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Lisa Madigan calls the rules "an all-out assault on public health."

The Bush administration last month announced it was making it easier for power plants and factories to make large upgrades without having to install anti-pollution technology.

The new rules would allow improvements worth up to 20-percent of a plant's total value before pollution-fighting devices are required.
