Longleaf Permit Reissued
August 1 2011: In April, an ALJ ruled that parts of the permit issued to Longleaf for control of hazardous air pollutants is illegal. The permit was remanded back to the state environmental agency, and in August, the agecny reissued the permit. You can find the narrative for the permit here (link no longer valid), and the final permit here (link no longer valid). Because the ALJ maintained jurisdiction over the permit during the remand, no appeal is needed for the case to proceed. As such, the permit challenge is back before Judge Howells.
