Public Hearing in D.C. on the EPA’s Proposed Clean Power Plan

July 29, 2014 @ 8:00 am - July 30, 2014 @ 9:00 pm

On June 2, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled its Clean Power Plan, the first-ever federal standard for limiting carbon pollution from existing power plants.

In July, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold four public hearings across the country to hear comments on the proposed Clean Power Plan. It is important for climate champions and concerned citizens like you to attend the mid-Atlantic hearing to show support for reducing carbon pollution from our power sector, and urge EPA to strengthen the proposed standard.

What: National carbon rules public hearing
