Before the end of the year, federal lawmakers are expected to undertake a series of actions to limit, amend, delay or repeal President Obama’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) final rule. The final rule was formally published on Oct. 23 in the Federal Register, opening the floodgates to a myriad of challenges in Congress and the courts. The rule, designed to cut carbon emissions from power plants by 32 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, is the cornerstone of the president’s Climate Action Plan.
In the upcoming weeks, lawmakers are expected to use every tool at their disposal to repeal the CPP. If unsuccessful, lawmakers may try measures to amend or delay implementation of the CPP with the hope that the courts overturn the regulation.
