New Development in EPA’s Clean Air Act Rules for Power Plants
In the December 1, 2015 Federal Register, US EPA published a supplemental finding to defend its inclusion of coal- and oil-fired Electric Utility Steam Generating Units (EGUs) on the list of sources in Section 112(c) of the Clean Air Act. In short, the supplemental finding purports to show that consideration of cost does not alter EPA’s determination about the need to regulate emissions from these sources.
Read EPA’s supplemental finding in the Federal Register.
EPA is requesting comments on the cost considerations laid out in the supplemental finding, including a cost-benefit analysis of the new air standards and expected costs to the power sector. If finalized after the comments have been reviewed, the finding will conclude that coal- and oil- fired EGUs are properly included on the Clean Air Act section 112(c) list of sources to be regulated.
Comments can be submitted under Docket ID no. EPA-HQ-OAR-2009-0234 at www.regulations.gov.

I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.

I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.
