Pruitt: EPA will replace Clean Power Plan with new regulation
from Utility Dive
The Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency told House lawmakers Dec. 7 that his agency will replace the Obama-era Clean Power Plan with a new regulation, rather than eliminating it outright. "We are going to be introducing a replacement rule too, in place of the Clean Power Plan," Pruitt told the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a morning hearing. Previously, he had only committed to issuing a call for comments on how to proceed with the climate rules.
