President Newton B. Jones

Members can send in comments until December 1

BETWEEN NOW AND December 1 of this year, stakeholders and the public have an opportunity to submit comments to the EPA about its proposed rule for carbon dioxide emission limits for existing coal-fired power plants. December 1 is the last day the EPA will accept comments about this onerous rule, called Clean Power Plan (CPP). The agency plans to issue a final rule for CPP in June 2015.
