Clean air advocates urge EPA to get rid of 'loopholes' in new refinery rule
from Houston Chronicle
Clean air advocates from around the country descended on Houston Nov. 17 to urge EPA officials to scrap changes to new regulations that they say give refineries a free pass to pollute. The agency issued the Refinery Sector Rule in 2014, a move considered overkill by industry officials. Environmental groups cheered the rule but were extremely critical of changes the agency made before the order was finalized in December 2015. They compelled the EPA to reconsider some of those changes, and the recent hearing gave both sides a chance to weigh in again.
