Stakeholder Perspectives on the Clean Air Interstate and the Clean Air Mercury Rules
In a follow-up to last month’s detailed overviews of the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and the Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR), this month EM presents perspectives on the two rules from representatives of a range of stakeholders, including EPA, the states, the regulated community, and the environmental community. Last month, EM featured detailed overviews of two major air quality regulations recently promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and the Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR). This month, EM presents an array of “stakeholder perspectives” on the two rules from EPA, states, industry, and the environmental community. Not surprisingly, the stakeholders’ views vary from full support to strong opposition, particularly on the mercury (Hg) rule.
