OMB Misses Greenhouse Pollution Rule Deadline

The White House Office of Management and Budget has missed its Friday deadline to review the EPA’s proposed rule for greenhouse gas pollution from new and modified power plants, sent to OMB on November 7. The 90-day deadline for such reviews under a Clinton-era executive order is not binding. The EPA is yet to introduce and implement carbon rules for existing power plants and for petroleum refineries; Congress has banned regulation of industrial agriculture greenhouse pollution.
