SD Officials Lobby Against Power Plant Rule

SD Officials Lobby Against Power Plant Rule
SIOUX FALLS, SD - South Dakota officials are lobbying hard against new federal regulations to curb mercury and other toxic pollution from coal-fired power plants. One of South Dakota's two coal-fired plants would be affected.

Twenty-five states including South Dakota have sided with the utility industry and asked a federal judge to delay the regulations for a year. South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and 10 other governors sent a letter to the White House seeking a delay.

Opponents of the Environmental Protection Agency plans believe the regulations will hurt the economy and cause electric rates to jump. The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission wants federal energy regulators to study how the rule and others like it would affect the nation's power supply and the price of electricity.
