EPA Outreach Ignores Top Coal States
EPA is holding listening sessions to solicit input from the public and stakeholders to assist in the development of new greenhouse gas regulations for existing power plants. Yet as this map illustrates, EPA is avoiding the states that are most dependent on coal-generated electricity. Consumers in states where coal is the dominant electricity source could suffer the most under proposed regulations. EPA should ensure that all citizens have the opportunity to participate in listening sessions on regulations-especially those who will be paying the most for them.
