    DC Circuit strikes down EPA’s rule on certain Indian lands

    The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday invalidated an Environmental Protection Agency rule that was meant cover all of Indian Country.
    The state of Oklahoma convinced the court that the July 2011 rule does not apply to “non-reservation” parts of Indian Country. Specifically, this means the EPA can’t regulate air quality on Indian allotments and dependent Indian communities that are not currently recognized as being a part of a reservation.
