Sierra Club Sought to Compel Issuance of Long-Overdue Efficiency Standards for Manufactured Housing. Sierra Club filed a lawsuit in the federal district court for the District of Columbia seeking to compel Secretary of Energy Rick Perry to establish energy efficiency standards for manufactured housing. Sierra Club alleged that the Secretary of Energy had failed to meet the December 19, 2011 deadline for prescribing such standards set by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA). Sierra Club said the Secretary had violated EISA and that the failure to promulgate standards constituted an agency action unlawfully withheld under the Administrative Procedure Act.
