Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change Heather Zichal met on July 19 with six to eight Democratic members of the House Energy and Commerce and Natural Resources Committees. She discussed the three main parts of the President’s climate plan and also went through the timing for the rules on power plants. For new plants, the reworked rule will be rolled out again this fall to be finalized in early 2014. For existing plants, the proposed rule will come out in June 2014 and finalized in 2015. Members included House Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Representatives Lois Capps (D-CA), Alan Lowenthal (D-CA), Grace Napolitano (D-CA), Niki Tsongas (D-MA), and Rush Holt (D-CA).
