Last week there were strong indications that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will drop certain cases against dozens of companies for environmental violations. The move is an outgrowth of the rule change in the Clean Air Act's New Source Review provision. If the lawsuits are dropped, it will give a lot more fuel against President George W. Bush administration forces. It increases the chances that the environment will be a major issue in the 2004 presidential election campaign.
