Interim Report of the Committee on Changes in New Source Review Programs
for Stationary Sources of Air Pollutants
Requested by Congress in PL 108-7, this interim report from the National Academies studies how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's regulatory revisions, that require power plants to implement new pollution controls when making facility upgrades, would affect air quality and public health. Specifically, the report provides background information on the issue and outlines the study committee's approach. A final report will be issued later this year.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 13, 2005 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
