On September 8, the Environmental Protection Agency’s top air quality official Gina McCarthy told the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power that the agency does not need or want another 15 months to issue maximum achievable control technology standards for air toxics emissions from boilers and incinerators. The extension is proposed in Rep. H. Morgan Griffith’s (R-VA) EPA Regulatory Relief Act, which will likely see a vote on October 3. McCarthy argued that EPA intends to reconsider the Boiler MACT rules by April 2012, making an additional 15 months unnecessary.
