NTAA: Policy Response Kits

Policy Response Kits:

Proposed Repeal of the Clean Power Plan:

NTAA has prepared a Policy Response Kit on EPA’s proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan. The Policy Response Kit includes NTAA’s comment letter submitted to EPA, a template letter your Tribe can use to submit comments and a basic fact sheet. EPA is accepting comments until April 26, 2018.

EPA will hold three listening sessions in San Francisco, California, Gillette, Wyoming, and Kansas City, Missouri. Details on exact locations and times will be announced on this EPA website.

The CPP established emission guidelines for states to follow in limiting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing electric generating units (EGUs) approximately 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. EPA is seeking public comment on a proposed repeal of the CPP and will has provided notice of advanced rule making for a replacement for the CPP. Under the Clean Air Act (CAA) and supported by the Supreme Court’s Endangerment Finding, CO2 is considered to be a pollutant and therefore must be regulated by the EPA.
