Explainer Episode 3 – EPA’s New Clean Air Act Rules

In this episode, Jeff Holmstead and Megan Herzog discuss the recent rule change from EPA on emissions standards. The Affordable Clean Energy plan replaces the Obama-era Clean Power Plan. The reduction in admissions standards has raised new questions: what does the Clean Air Act authorize EPA to regulate, how much discretion does EPA have in regulating emissions, which plan more closely fits the intent of the original law? These and other questions are taken up in this engaging discussion.
