Summary:

An EPA decision on a proposed mining operation will set national policy on handling similar permit requests, thus triggering a legal requirement for public input, an environmental group argues. The group points to an email obtained under FOIA showing an EPA official notes EPA's evaluation will set national precedent and shape how the agency handles similar proposals.
