Kansas Senate Bills Seek to Stall EPA’s Regulations

KSAL StaffFebruary 20, 2015

A Kansas Senate committee is considering two bills that would delay or possibly prevent enactment of new federal clean air regulations.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the Senate Utilities Committee is expected to advance one of the bills next week.

The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing rules that would require states to adopt plans for reducing carbon emissions from power plants by 30 percent by 2030. The rules are to take effect in June.

One bill would require the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to notify the KCC before entering agreements with utilities over carbon dioxide emission standards. The other bill would prohibit the KCC and health department from even drafting a state plan before all of litigation surrounding the rules has been resolved.
