GreenLaw Fights for Cleaner Air Quality in Atlanta
On June 28, 2013, GreenLaw submitted adverse comments to EPA's proposed rule-making regarding the Atlanta Area’s reasonable further progress plan toward clean air attainment.
If the rule passes in its current state, nitrogen oxide emissions from coal-burning plants may not be reduced, as required under the Clean Air Act. GreenLaw maintains that the current RFP plan, which is supposed to provide ongoing emission reductions, does not provide measurable and creditable reductions of nitrogen oxide emissions.
If GreenLaw’s comments are successful, then Georgia’s plan will ensure that less pollution is emitted by coal-fired plants, making the Atlanta area’s air cleaner.
