EPA proposes approval of Arkansas GHG program

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed to approve the state of Arkansas’ program for permitting new facilities that will emit significant amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGs). If approved, the state’s program will replace a federal plan that had been in place since 
January 2011.

Final approval would provide the state with authority to issue GHG permits and establish emissions levels for new or heavily modified GHG sources.

The EPA has been the GHG permitting authority in Arkansas since the state did not have such a program in place, and the new program will be a replacement for the federal plan.

EPA’s proposed approval will be published in the Federal Register in seven to 10 days and will available for public comment for 30 days.
