Tribe near Vegas appealing EPA coal plant air rule

FILE - In this Monday, May 14, 2012, file photo, the Reid-Gardner power station is seen near a farm on the Moapa Indian Reservation, in Moapa, Nev. Tribal neighbors of a coal-fired power plant outside Las Vegas are taking complaints about air quality to a federal appeals court in San Francisco. Moapa Band of Paiute Indians leader William Anderson said Monday the tribe hopes the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will order the federal Environmental Protection Agency to adopt a more stringent air standard than the one the agency approved in August for the Reid Gardner Generating Station.
