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.

In addition, EPA has prioritized the replacement of the Clean Power Plan and started the process for this replacement. Below you can find the attached comments from the National Tribal Air Association regarding EPA’s Electric Utility Generating Units: Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on State Guidelines for Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Existing Sources. EPA accepted public comments on the CPP replacement’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking until February 26, 2018. There will be more opportunities to provide comment on any rulemaking that EPA proposes for a CPP replacement.
