EPA Region I to Discuss Clean Power Plan in Portland

Portland didn’t make the short list of official hearing locations (Atlanta, Denver, Washington, D.C., and Pittsburgh (where all speaking slots were apparently full)) but it appears the Natural Resources Council of Maine has invited Region I Administrator, Curtis “Curt” Spalding, to Portland to discuss the Agency’s new regulations under § 111(d) of the CAA. While this doesn’t appear to be an official hearing (it’s not listed on EPA websites) it does present an opportunity to hear more about the CAA regulations and make comments or ask questions directly to the Region 1 Administrator. The event is being held Wednesday, August 6 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Lee Auditorium in the Wishcamper Center of U.S.M.
