RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia lawmakers and business leaders are taking aim at the Environmental Protection Agency and new coal-plant pollution regulations.
They'll outline their opposition Tuesday at a news conference in Richmond. They are expected to state their opposition to proposed regulations that would impose limits on carbon emissions from coal-fired plants.
The proposed regulations have already had an impact, with many power companies moving to cleaner natural gas to generate electricity.
The legislators are expected to release a letter to President Barack Obama, urging him to abandon the proposed regulations for what they call a more sensible approach. Organizers say the letter has the signature of 85 members of the General Assembly.
