EPA sends new proposed standard for carbon emission from new power plants to OMB for review


From the July 3, 2013 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published July 3, 2013

The Environmental Protection Agency has sent a new draft of a proposed rule to limit greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants to the Office of Management and Budget for review. No details on the substance of the new proposal were released. OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has 90 days to review the rule, but can extend its reviews. However, an extension appears unlikely since President Obama, in a June 25 memorandum,  directed EPA to re-propose by Sept. 20 its proposed New Source Performance Standard for new power plants. The president set a deadline of June 1, 2014, for EPA to propose standards, regulations, or guidelines, as appropriate, for existing, reconstructed and modified plants. The memo directed the agency to issue final rules or guidelines for existing plants by June 1, 2015 (see the June 26 Public Power Daily).
