May 27, 2009

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has responded to the request by over 100 environmental groups for meaningful coal ash regulations. On March 2, 2009, the Environmental Integrity Project, on behalf of 109 environmental groups, sent a letter to the EPA Administrator urging her to act quickly, and with certain key principles in mind, to regulate the disposal of coal ash. The Administrator says proposed regulations will reflect careful consideration of the principles of our letter. For a copy of Administrator Jackson’s letter, click here.
