Vermont Opposes Mercury Emissions Rules

Print More

Vermont is one of 11 states opposing a federal proposal that would give coal-fired power plants flexibility in cutting mercury emissions. The group claims the rules being considered by the Environmental Protection Agency would weaken pollution standards. The group also says the rules would provide power plants with loopholes that would endanger public health. The Bush administration has proposed regulating mercury in a way similar to other pollutants.
