"CSX" Ed Whitfield: we're going after the whole Clean Air Act next

from Environment and Energy Daily:

...Whitfield has said that later in the year his subcommittee will take a second look at the Clean Air Act as a whole.

"We're going to look at a lot of these regulations, because I think a lot of them have just gone by ... and the only people noticing them are those immediately impacted. But the broader society is not really focused on this," he said yesterday.

"We're not averse to going in and changing the Clean Air Act if we think it needs to be changed, and we would be happy to do that," he added.

Whitfield named several EPA rules as deserving of congressional scrutiny, including the new air transport rule, which targets sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides emissions from power plants.
