NARUC asks EPA to be flexible during drafts for emissions rules for existing plants

The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) is urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to be flexible and seek input across State governments as it develops emissions reduction rules for existing power plants.

NARUC is encouraging the EPA to rely on State utility and environmental regulators as it pursues its rules. The resolution also asks the agency to find ways to accommodate existing State actions and recognize that States may need flexible approaches.

The resolution was one of several passed by NARUC membership during the annual meeting. The resolutions are now considered NARUC policy, providing guidance and positions for the Association’s advocacy before Congress, the White House, federal agencies, and the courts.

NARUC is a non-profit organization representing the State Public Service Commissioners who regulate essential utility services, including energy, telecommunications, and water.
