EPA to reconsider part of its interstate pollution rule

The US EPA quietly announced this afternoon that it would reconsider part of its interstate pollution cleanup rule -- the so-called "Clean Air Interstate" or "CAIR" rule.

This is in response to petitions by various power companies and groups (See list below).

Among the items to be looked at: EPA's decision to steer extra "credits" to coal states.


Petitions for reconsideration were filed by:
1. State of North Carolina;
2. FPL Group;
3. Florida Association of Electric Utilities;
4. Entergy Corporation;
5. Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection;
6. Integrated Waste Services Association;
7. Texas Commission on Environmental Quality;
8. Northern Indiana Public Service Corporation;
9. City of Amarillo, Texas, El Paso Electric Company, Occidental Permian Ltd, and Southwestern Public Service Company d/b/a/ Xcel Energy;
10. Connecticut Business and Industry Association; and
11. Minnesota Power, a division of ALLETE, Inc.
