“Consistent with our commitment to the rule of law, we’ve already set in motion an assessment of the previous administration’s questionable legal basis in our proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan (CPP),” said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. “With a clean slate, we can now move forward to provide regulatory certainty.”
The ANPRM comes after the EPA proposed the repeal of the CPP back in October. In that proposal, the EPA proposed to determine that the regulation exceeded the agency’s statutory authority.
The ANPRM offers the public the opportunity to comment on specific topics for the agency to consider in developing any subsequent proposed rule. The EPA is specifically soliciting information on systems of emission reduction that are applicable to or at a power plant, information on compliance measures, and information on state-planning requirements under Clean Air Act section 111(d).
The EPA will take comment on the ANPRM for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register.
