Officials gather in ND to discuss new EPA rules

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Agency and industry representatives from about two dozen states are meeting in Bismarck to discuss new federal clean air rules. The two-day summit began Wednesday and is hosted by the state Health Department and Bismarck-based Basin Electric Power Cooperative. Organizers say the intent is to decide how states should respond to new federal Environmental Protection Agency requirements aimed at cutting pollution from power plants and oil refineries. The proposed EPA rule is part of a Climate Action Plan released by President Barack Obama last year.

The rule would cap emissions at existing coal-fired power plants and set limits for emissions on all future plants. Governor Jack Dalrymple says such a rule is impossible to attain ``overnight.''
