EPA announcement. Proposed Emission Standards meeting.

“(A revised action on a proposal for a new source performance standard for emissions of carbon dioxide) proposes a separate standard of performance for fossil fuel-fired electric utility steam generating units and integrated gasification combined cycle units that burn coal, petroleum coke and other fossil fuels that is based on partial implementation of carbon
capture and storage as the best system of emission reduction.
This action also proposes standards for natural gas-fired stationary combustion turbines based on modern, efficient natural gas combined cycle technology as the best system of
emission reduction. This action also includes related proposals concerning permitting fees under Clean Air Act Title V, the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program, and the definition of the
pollutant covered under the prevention of significant deterioration program. “
