May 17, 2013: Motion Filed to Reconsider Regional Furnace Rule Stay

May 17, 2013
WASHINGTON — In the ongoing regional standards lawsuit, the American Public Gas Association (APGA) has filed a motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit asking that it reconsider its May 1 order, which stayed enforcement of the regional furnace standards rule, but also asked the parties to re-brief all of the main issues.

The APGA motion asks that the appeals court instead:

• Grant the joint U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)/APGA motion to vacate the regional furnace standards; and

• Deny the Heating, Air-conditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) request to substitute as a petitioner.

If that reconsideration is denied, APGA requests that the court clarify the order such that if additional briefing is necessary, it be limited to supplemental briefs on procedural issues on which the May 1 order did not address.

The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) had filed the motion for a stay of the May 1, 2013 compliance date for implementation of the regional furnace standards. AHRI said it is consulting with DOE and other parties on this latest development.
