Rep. Edward Whitfield (R-KY) is planning on introducing a bill in August that seeks to slow down the EPA’s proposals to strengthen air emissions standards for coal-fired power plants. Rep. Whitfield also expressed interest in conducting a comprehensive review of the Clean Air Act, which has not had any major changes since 1990. Whitfield believes in nuclear power, clean coal, and natural gas, but questions the potential for wind and solar power. Whitfield is also skeptical of the Administration’s fiscal 2012 budget request to increase funding for federal loan guarantees to develop new nuclear power plants.
