“Denial of the permit was, therefore, warranted and in compliance with standing law,” Rogers-Wright commented. “That said, DEC must exercise consistency as it pertains to Title V Permits; Section 7 of the CLCPA is lucid in its determination that no permits should be granted that would prevent emissions reduction goals from being realized, nor should they result in disproportionate impacts to disadvantaged communities.”
