On April 19, 2023, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a draft rule to reduce Texas coal plant pollution after the state failed to produce an adequate plan.
This draft rule will require six of the largest Texas coal plants to collectively cut their sulfur dioxide pollution to 80,000 tons per year. This would nearly halve the state’s overall sulfur dioxide emissions from the biggest haze polluters.
The EPA will be accepting written comments on their draft rule until August 2, 2023.
JOIN US in writing letters to the EPA in support of this draft rule & to show our thanks.
