There is a widely shared prediction that a Romney administration would apply a significantly looser -- or more supportive -- hand on the industry, depending on one's perspective. But how far could a Romney U.S. EPA really go in trying to slow the shift from coal-fired power plants to gas generators? Would a second-term Obama EPA try to use a climate argument to tighten federal rules over fracking operations that have been primarily under state regulatory control?
