This week, more than 25 states, Guam, and various electric, monetary and justice groups, among others, will ask a federal court to offer the EPA more time to truly address the impact of its proposed Utility MACT regulation on electric reliability.
The states' and groups' filings on the regulation, which many believe could put electric reliability at risk, will hold the EPA accountable to a deadline, while also ensuring the EPA will observe all likely, negative impacts the regulation may have in the future.
A wide array of individuals believe the regulation will force many coal-fired power plants, which are still very effective, as they continue to support the nation's electric grid, to close prematurely, likely leading to more regular blackouts throughout the United States.
To address this issue, a media call, with various legal experts, will occur on Oct. 12, 2011.
WHAT: Media call to discuss the EPA's proposed Utility MACT regulation on electric reliability, which many hope will be extended.
WHEN: Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011 at 11:30 a.m. ET.
WHERE: RSVP. Please contact Ashley Morris at 703-683-5004, extension 123.
WHO: Media call hosts include the following three individuals: Andrew Langer, president of the Institute for Liberty; Lee A. Casey, partner at the Washington, D.C. law firm of Baker & Hostetler and Andrew M. Grossman, litigator at Baker & Hostetler.
Again, to RSVP, please contact Ashley Morris at 703-683-5004, extension 123.
