U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, has joined a bipartisan group of 52 fellow Senators in writing to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy requesting that the EPA provide a 60-day extension for the public comment period on its proposed rule to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The letter asks the EPA to extend the deadline to allow Texas and other states additional time to analyze the potential impact on adequate power generation and grid reliability and respond accordingly.
