EPA’s uncertain FIP power drives competing lobbying on state ESPS plans
Also, the free-market R Street Institute says in a Nov. 24 paper that the ESPS will fail due to state resistance.
Concerns about EPA’s overreach “have resulted in a number of state legislatures adopting laws that would actually forbid pursuing compliance methods ‘outside the fence,'” the institute says. “Next year, that list of states will likely grow, as state officials become more aware of the threat posed by EPA. . . . Many of these states will fall short of EPA compliance. Other states may simply refuse to provide plans to the agency.”
