“By EPA’s logic, someone could decide whether it is “appropriate” to buy a Ferrari without thinking about cost, because he plans to think about cost later when deciding whether to upgrade the sound system.”
– Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia 


The Supreme Court’s decision to halt the EPA’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standards Rule in the Michigan v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency case is a sign of rational thinking when it comes to the overreach of the EPA.
The Court shared in their opinion that the implementation of such a rule is not appropriate as it would impose billions of dollars in economic costs in return for a few dollars in health or environmental benefits. With this decision, the Court has made it clear that the EPA must consider cost when it comes to rule-making.
