EPA Delays Carbon Dioxide Rule Until Sometime this Summer

Posted 02/02/2015

For the past year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been working on new rules to regulate the carbon dioxide emissions of power plants as pollutants under the Clean Air Act.

The agency expected to finalize its highly controversial carbon dioxide standards for new units on January 8, and for existing units on June 1.
EPA will postpone these rules until sometime “mid-summer,” Janet McCabe, acting assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, said in a conference call with reporters.
