I thought that there was supposed to be at most just two sets of rules -- the federal rules and the California rules. We are not supposed to have Vermont rules too.

The Act allows other states to adopt the Cal. rules. When they do so, there are still only two sets of rules: the federal rules and California's.

Yes, I know that. But if Vermont supports the proposed California greenhouse-gas auto emissions standards, then Vermont should join California's suit over denial of the waiver. Vermont should not sue separately.

Vermont didn't sue. Industry sued Vermont. USDOJ filed an amicus brief.

And as far as California's suit challenging EPA's waiver denial is concerned, Vermont does support California. But the 2d Circuit litigation involving Vermont's rules was fied by industry, not Vermont.

"juisticeability" sounds like another Bushism. Like "truthiness".
