EPA to Delay New Climate Rules

Another set of environmental rules has been postponed. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson says the agency won’t make its goal of issuing new rules for power plants by Sept. 30. It’s the second time the new rules have been delayed. It had originally aimed to issue the new regulations on July 26, but facing pressure from congressional Republicans and industry, the agency extended the deadline to the end of this month. Earlier in September, the Obama administration postponed new ozone standards for at least two years.
