EPA withdraws regulation on 'major sources' of pollution
From Jan. 31:
The Environmental Protection Agency is withdrawing a policy that requires facilities, such as power plants, that are "major" sources of hazardous air pollutants to remain classified as major sources even if they lowered their emissions. The move allows major facilities to be reclassified as "area" sources after they reduce the air toxins they emit to levels below what defines a major source. A major source, according to the EPA's standards, emits 10 tons or more of pollutants a year or 25 tons or more of a combination of pollutants.
