EPA Extends Comment Period for GHG

October 06, 2014 9:26 AM | Philip Westmoreland (Administrator)

The U.S. Environmental Protection agency extended the comment deadline on its proposed greenhouse gas rule for existing power plants by 45 days to December 1.  The extension comes in response to requests from several lawmakers who said more time is needed to deal with the complex proposed rule, which sets individual carbon dioxide reduction goals for each state. The agency originally proposed a 120-day comment period in recognition of the complexity and broad range of issues at play. The agency is adding 45 days “to get the best possible advice and data to inform the final rule,” according to EPA.
