The House passed the EPA Regulatory Relief Act of 2011 (H.R.2250) October 13 after rejecting all 14 Democratic amendments to the bill. The legislation would delay the Boiler MACT rule, maximum achievable control technology standards to reduce mercury and other air toxics emitted by boilers, process heaters, and certain incinerators, for at least eight years and require the Agency to develop more easily attainable standards for industry. Despite attempts to include similar language in various Senate bills, Senate passage of a similar measure is not anticipated, and the White House has threatened a veto in the case that it does.
