An Obama-Era EPA Regulation That Sought To Reduce Emissions From Power Plants "Particularly" Impacted The Nation's 600 Coal-Fired Power Plants And Experts Said It Could Close Hundreds Of Plants. "The E.P.A. regulation would cut carbon pollution from power plants by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, particularly from the nation's more than 600 coal-fired power plants. The rule, which is to be finalized a year from now after a public comment period, gives each state flexibility to devise its own approach to meeting its goals. Experts say it could close hundreds of plants." (Trip Gabriel, "Democrats In Coal Country Run From E.P.A," The New York Times , 06/02/14)
