The House Energy and Commerce Committee easily passed two bills September 21 that would delay the Environmental Protection Agency in setting emissions standards for boilers, incinerators, and cement kilns. The EPA Regulatory Relief Act of 2011 (H.R. 2250) would provide the EPA with another 15 months to issue the boiler and incinerator rule, and would give industry five years from the date of the final rule, instead of three, to comply. The Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act of 2011 (H.R. 2681) would delay the EPA by 15 months as well and would extend industry compliance to five years. Though the Boiler and Cement MACT rules are likely to pass the House next week, they are not expected to pass the Senate, and the White House has also threatened to veto such legislation in the event that the measures to make it to his desk.
