The Environmental Protection Agency published a notice August 2 staying the mercury and air toxics standards for new power plants until November 2. The agency announced July 20 that it agreed to reconsider the standards for new coal and oil-fired plants, following industry complaints that the mercury limits are too low to be continuously monitored, thus potentially preventing new coal-fired plants from being built. The agency does not expect to complete the reconsideration process until next March.
