The Environmental Protection Agency confirmed November 21 that it will miss a December 15 deadline to propose greenhouse gas emissions limits for petroleum refineries. Though the agency has a court deadline of December 15 to propose the refinery rule, it has not yet sent it to the White House Office of Management and Budget, and said that it will need more time to prepare its proposed new source performance standards for GHG emissions from refineries under Section 111 of the Clean Air Act, becoming the second GHG rule it has postponed. Earlier this month, the Environmental Protection Agency said it would miss court deadlines to issue New Source Performance Standards for power plants as well, though Administrator Lisa Jackson said last week that they would be released early next year after a review by the White House Office of Management and Budget.
