November 20, 2015 – After assessing costs in several different ways, EPA is proposing to find that considering costs does not alter the determination that it is appropriate to regulate the emissions of toxic air pollution from power plants. EPA is proposing this supplemental finding in response to a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.
