Coal ash legislation forthcoming
(Lexology 02-10-2013) Representative David McKinley (R-WV) is expected soon to introduce coal ash legislation. The measure will attempt to strike a balance between Representative Bill Johnson’s (R-OH) Stop the War on Coal Act (H.R. 3409) and Senator John Hoeven’s (R-ND) Coal Ash Recycling and Oversight Act of 2012 (S. 3512); both would have prohibited the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating ash from coal-fired power plants, leaving oversight to state permitting programs.
