The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) is conducting a stakeholder process to consider strengthening emission limits for sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide from coal-fired power plants. MDE has put forth background presentations suggesting that current limits are not stringent enough to provide adequate protections to public health. Chesapeake PSR has been participating in this stakeholder process and has provided comments to the MDE on public health issues caused by these poorly control coal-fired power plants. It has written the Governor asking him to take action on coal-fired power plants, submitted comments to MDE supporting preliminary draft regulations regulating NOx pollution, written the Governor's Chief of Staff, John Griffin, asking the O'Malley Administration to support tough new proposals on NOx emissions, and held various training and networking events to build support for these efforts.More information »
