Trial to Inside EPA
From Inside PFAS Policy

In a win for industry, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has designated as “economically significant” EPA’s imminent proposal to list two per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) as Superfund “hazardous substances,” requiring the agency to issue a regulatory impact analysis (RIA) that includes a broader look at the landmark rule’s potential direct and indirect costs and benefits.

State regulators have significantly different views on major aspects of the Biden administration’s proposed revisions to Clean Water Act (CWA) section 401 regulations, prompting calls for EPA to generally provide states with flexibilities and urging the agency to weigh advice from individual states before finalizing the rule.

From Climate Extra

President Joe Biden has enacted legislation that will provide about $370 billion in unprecedented funding to spur low-carbon energy and curb greenhouse gases, including over $40 billion in EPA funds, with supporters arguing the measure represents a historic legislative response to climate change that will put U.S. goals within reach.

Environmentalists are suing EPA over the agency’s partial denial of their petition for an objection to the air permit granted by Arizona air regulators to a coal-fired power plant, after EPA found some of their core objections to a novel pollution control plan to be premature for adjudication in a permit dispute.

From Inside TSCA

EPA says it is preparing a new analysis of risks posed by “down-the-drain releases” of 1,4-dioxane as part of its supplemental TSCA evaluation, in the agency’s first public hint of how it will seek to strengthen a Trump-era review that was widely criticized as too lenient in part over its treatment of consumer products that contain small amounts of the chemical.
