UPDATED....EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson announced a strong new clean air rule

This is the first article we have found but I am sure there will be plenty.

Favorite paragraph from this article.

Texas, by contrast, will have to reduce more pollution than in the initial proposal, which required the state's power plants only to address summertime smog-forming pollution.

After reading EPA's Lisa Jackson's statement in the DMN this morning, great news for Texans and bordering states who are affected by pollution, SOx and NOx (and let's not forget Hg) coming from the lignite and coal-burning power plants. With TXI in Midlothian proving that there is a significant reduction in air toxins by utilizing pollution control methods, it is long overdue for power plants, too.
