EPA Chief: We’ll Be ‘Flexible’ with States on Carbon Emissions

by Greg Pollowitz

Gina McCarthy, while speaking at the liberal Center for American Progress, said, the “EPA next June will propose new standards that will also provide significant flexibility to the states that will protect public health from carbon pollution from existing power plants.”

States had been asking for this “flexibility,” but no details, as of yet, on just how flexible the standards will be.
