EPA adjusts public comment period on Clean Power Plan


The federal EPA has received 1.5 million public comments on the agency’s Clean Power Plan that will impact the emissions of existing coal-fired power plants.
EPA acting assistant administrator for the agency’s Office of Air and Radiation Janet McCabe told reporters yesterday the agency is making more information available for comment.
McCabe said there have been lots of comments made about natural gas, the response by states to the new rule and timelines. She said that information will now be made available for other people to see so they can comment.

The public comment period ends Dec. 1.
