Vt. might sue EPA over wood boilers

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Vermont is joining six other states in a plan to sue the Environmental Protection Agency.

Vermont's Attorney General says the EPA has failed to review and revise performance standards for residential wood heaters under the Clean Air Act. The states say the EPA's 25-year-old standards are outdated and do not cover outdoor wood boilers, which they say are major air polluters.

They're giving the EPA 60 days to address the issue before they sue.
