Clean Power Plant Comment Deadline

As reported in a previous edition of the Legislative Update, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released the “Clean Power Plant Proposed Rule.”  

The proposal is designed to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants by making them more efficient and less polluting.  It will be implemented through a state-federal partnership under which states develop a plan to use either current or new electricity production and pollution control policies to meet the goal of reducing carbon emissions.

Full details of the proposal, including an online comment system, are available at:

Comments on the proposed rule are due on October 16, 2014.
