EPA Seeks Input on Federal Plan for Regulating Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Power Plants
Reaching out and engaging with the public and stakeholders has been the agency's top priority throughout the development of this rule, and EPA is committed to continuing this engagement moving forward. Based on input from states and stakeholders, EPA believes that many states will find the information included in this plan helpful as they begin to develop their own plans to cut carbon pollution from power plants.
This panel will provide important feedback to the agency as it works to develop a proposed federal plan.
It is being established pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act, and will include federal representatives from the Small Business Administration (SBA), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and EPA. The panel members ask a selected group of SERs to provide advice and recommendations on behalf of their company, community, or organization to inform the panel members about the potential impacts of the proposed rule on small entities.
EPA seeks self-nominations directly from the small entities that may be subject to the rule requirements. Other representatives, such as trade associations that exclusively or at least primarily represent potentially regulated small entities, may also serve as SERs.
Self-nominations may be submitted through the link below and must be received by February 10, 2015.
Nominate yourself as a SER by visiting: http://www.epa.gov/rfa/cpp-federal-plan.html
