Albuquerque, NM – Attorney General Hector Balderas, as part of a coalition of 11 state attorneys general, today filed a lawsuit against the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for illegally delaying a vital rule meant to protect communities, workers, and first responders from dangerous chemical accidents. The rule – the Accidental Release Prevention Requirements or the “Chemical Accident Safety Rule” – makes critical improvements to Congressionally-mandated protections against explosions, fires, poisonous gas releases, and other accidents at more than 12,000 facilities across the country that store and use toxic chemicals. In New Mexico, there are 95 facilities subject to the Risk Management Program according to the EPA.
