EPA to delay proposing NSPS rules for power sector

U.S. EPA reached a pact with states and environmental groups this morning that will give the agency another two months to propose a second round of rules for greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants, an agency spokesman said today. Under the deal, which has not yet been put on paper, the proposed New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for utilities will be due on Sept. 30, rather than July 26. The rules will still need to be finalized by May 26, 2012, as was agreed upon in a December settlement, press secretary Brendan Gilfillan said.
