EPA set to unveil host of new regulationsSubmitted by Const. Clayton on Mon, 07/08/2013 - 15:15
This September, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plans to propose rules for greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants, and next June will issue draft rules for existing facilities.
Those dates match up with the timeline President Obama has given for the new regulations, which supporters have cheered as a major step in confronting climate change.
That's a good sign that the administration is serious about the rules, according to James Goodwin, a policy analyst with the Center for Progressive Reform.
