EPA listening to stakeholders about their proposed rules on greenhouse gas standards

The Environmental Protection Agency will hold a series of “listening sessions” in the coming months in order to get input from stakeholders on the agency’s plans to implement new greenhouse gas standards on power plants and refineries.

If  you cannot make it to the sessions, each session will be webcast and recorded for later viewing at http://www.epa.gov/live and written comments on these planned rulemakings may also be submitted. The agency requests that written comments be submitted by March 18, 2011. For information and instructions on submitting written comments, go to http://www.epa.gov/airquality/listen.html.
