Kansas sued the EPA yesterday to block the agency’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR).
The Kansas Attorney General said that the regulations will require Kansas utilities to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in new emissions control equipment by Jan. 1, and that it will be impossible for utilities to comply — and that means either Kansans will be paying higher rates or there won’t be enough electricity to meet Kansas demand.
But what does EPA care when it can abuse its Clean Air Act authority in lieu of cap-and-trade to wreck the coal industry?
