In a notice in the March 6 Federal Register, the Environmental Protection Agency has extended the public comment period by 60 days for its proposed rule limiting greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants. The proposed rule, announced by the EPA last September, was published in the Jan. 8 Federal Register. 

The agency also is extending the comment period for its Feb. 26 "notice of data availability" soliciting comment on its stance that the proposed rule does not violate the Energy Policy Act of 2005. (See the Feb. 27 Public Power Daily.)

The original deadline for comments was March 10. Comments will now be due by May 9 on both: 1) the proposed New Source Performance Standards for greenhouse gases for new generating plants and 2) the EPA's interpretation of the 2005 Energy Policy Act.
