Andrew Grossman Comments on Mercury Review for Coal-Fired Power Plants

News / November 9, 2018

Partner Andrew Grossman is quoted in an article published by S&P Global on Nov. 7, 2018. The article, “States Urge EPA to Finish Mercury Review Before Clean Power Plant Replacement,” discusses the Trump administration’s proposed Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Rule, which would replace the Obama-era Clean Power Plan.

Grossman told the publication that, in a general sense, allowing states to regulate mercury would give them greater flexibility. BakerHostetler also filed comments on behalf of the National Bituminous Coal Group urging the EPA to ensure coal-fired power plants are no longer regulated under Section 112. “Everybody expects that these types of emissions would still be regulated,” Grossman said.
