Hundreds of concerned citizens attended the public hearing for EPA’s proposed regulations for emissions of mercury, arsenic, and other toxins from coal-fired power plants. The Sierra Club’s ‘Beyond Coal’ campaign had a strong delegation, led by Sierra Club President Robin Mann. If you missed the Philadelphia hearing, audio recordings of the more than fifty participants are available from EPA.

You may still send your comments on the proposed mercury and air toxics standards to EPA until July 5. Identify your comments by Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2009-0234 send them by electronic mail.
