Public Hearings: Clean Power Plan Proposed Rule

EPA held public hearings in four locations for the proposed Clean Power Plan the week of July 28, 2014. The hearings provided interested parties the opportunity to present data, views or arguments concerning the proposed action.

EPA is pleased by the tremendous public interest in the proposed Clean Power Plan. A total of 1,322 speakers presented testimony at the hearings, and over 1,450 attended but did not speak. Already, we have received more than 1 million written comments on the proposal.

People may still comment on the proposal online or by email, fax or letter: EPA considers all comments equally, no matter how they are submitted. The comment period on the proposal is open until December 1, 2014.
