U.S. EPA and the Clean Power Plan Compliance Mess


From OMA Connections Partner Jones Day:  “The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent stay of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan prevents the Agency from enforcing the Plan’s provisions until certain legal challenges are ruled on by federal courts. Oral arguments before the D.C. Circuit are scheduled for early June 2016, after which a Supreme Court appeal of that decision is almost certain. All of this combines to make delaying the Clean Power Plan’s implementation almost inevitable, but the Agency has yet to explicitly acknowledge that state compliance deadlines will be postponed.” Read more about this EPA mess here.
