Clean Power Plant Rule

U.S. Supreme Court Stays EPA’s Clean Power Plan

On February 9, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court granted the stay sought by states challenging the U.S. EPA’s Clean Power Plan.    Issuance of the stay means that the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) will stop working on development of Georgia’s state plan to implement the Clean Power Plan until the courts have resolved this matter.  

EPD would like to thank its stakeholders for participating in various meetings, workshops, panels and committees.  EPD also thanks the various organizations that have invited us to participate in meetings and events; we as an organization have learned and benefited from your time, expertise, and generosity of knowledge.
