EPA rebukes COVID-19 compliance flexibility backlash; FERC gives regulated entities leeway
from Utility Dive
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on April 2 pushed back against federal lawmaker complaints that the compliance flexibility it granted power plants and other regulated entities gave those facilities license to pollute. House and Senate Democrats wrote letters to the EPA, criticizing its move to give industry leeway on air and water pollution compliance. Their comments joined a petition from several environmental groups asking the agency to provide more oversight on noncompliance.
