Carbon Pollution Standards

EPA Carbon Pollution Standards, Public Listening Sessions

EPA will hold 11 public listening sessions across the country to solicit ideas and input from the public and stakeholders about the best Clean Air Act approaches to reducing carbon pollution from existing power plants.
Please note: because of the government shutdown, EPA rescheduled the listening sessions for Boston, MA, and Philadelphia, PA. The new dates and times are listed below.
The Clean Air Act gives both EPA and states a role in reducing air pollution from power plants that are already in operation. The law directs EPA to establish guidelines, which states use to design their own programs to reduce emissions. Before proposing guidelines, EPA must consider how power plants with a variety of different configurations would be able to reduce carbon pollution in a cost-effective way.
The feedback from these 11 public listening sessions will play an important role in helping EPA develop smart, cost-effective guidelines that reflect the latest and best information available. The agency will seek additional public input during the notice and comment period once it issues a proposal by June 2014.
Below please find a list of listening sessions offered around the country and a point of contact for each if you have any questions. Each session will begin with brief introductory remarks followed by EPA listening to public input about reducing carbon pollution from existing power plants. You are invited to stay for as much of the session as you can and you may sign up for one or more sessions. Registration is highly encouraged due to large expected turn outs. If you are unable to attend one of these listening sessions, EPA is accepting input through the Contact Us page or at until November 8, 2013.
