Coal-reliant states readying for EPA power plant rules

WASHINGTON, April 1 (Reuters) – Long before the Obama
administration promised sweeping rules to limit pollution from
power plants, states in the crosshairs of what critics call a
“war on coal” have been finding ways to meet the expected new
standards.

President Barack Obama last June directed the Environmental
Protection Agency to propose national standards to lower carbon
emissions from the more than 1,000 U.S. power plants, a
centerpiece of his national climate strategy.

U.S. House panel investigates EPA’s power plant rule setting

WASHINGTON, March 12 (Reuters) – Republican lawmakers on
Wednesday launched an investigation into the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency’s decision-making process leading up to
establishing emissions standards for new power plants.

Leaders of the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce
Committee have written to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy
requesting documents they will use to determine whether the
agency complied with the law when it developed its proposals for
new power plants, announced in September 2013.
