SUGAR LAND--January 21, 2021--Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--On January 19, Donald Trump's last full day as president, his signature energy and environmental rulemaking, the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, was vacated in a 2-1 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. In vacating the rule, the court sent the matter back to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (Washington, D.C.).
