4 Traders published a recent item posted on Americans for Tax Reform’s official website: House Passes Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act

“This new legislation empowers state authorities instead of handing more power to an already out of control EPA. States will be given the authority to craft permitting programs and regulating coal ash. Also, the bill makes it explicitly clear that the EPA will not be given any new rulemaking authority when it comes to coal ash standards.  Using parts of Senator Hoeven's bill, H.R. 2218 improves safety standards, requires permitting for coal ash and disposal facilities, expands the public notice and comment requirements, and creates greater transparency and access to data for groundwater data and permitting documents.”
