TRAIN May Stay New EPA Regulation of Power Plant Emissions
On September 22, 2011, the U.S. House of Representatives passed by vote of 249–169 H.R. 2401, Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation (TRAIN). TRAIN proposes to delay, pending further committee review, the implementation of select recently proposed EPA regulations aimed at reducing airborne emissions. Specifically, TRAIN focuses upon new EPA rules directed toward regulating both emissions from individual power plants and aggregate emissions from power plants in certain states that are found to harm a neighboring state’s air quality.
