Former EPA officials work power plant rule outside of agency

U.S. EPA officials who have left the agency may have as much sway over its new power plant rule as those still employed there. In a review of Office of Management and Budget meeting records, Greenwire found more than a half-dozen former EPA officials have worked to influence the regulation on behalf of outside interests. Ex-agency honchos are representing clients of all stripes -- environmental groups, energy companies and utilities -- as EPA works to finalize its rule designed to reduce carbon pollution.
