EPA Extends Comment Period for Clean Power Plan
The US Environmental Protection Agency is extending the public comment period on the Clean Power Plan an additional 45 days, from Oct. 16 to Dec. 1, 2014. The agency unveiled its plan in June.
The extension comes following an effort from 53 senators who told EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy that the previous 120-day comment period did not allow states enough time to analyze, develop and submit their plans on its proposed carbon rule.
The agency has received more than 193,000 comments on its document “Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units,” that was made available in the Federal Register for public comment on June 18. The EPA has also received hundreds of thousands more comments through its public comment sessions in Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Washington, DC and Denver, reports The State Journal.
