260.098 Reduce Ozone Causing Emissions From Three Antiquated Coal-Fired Power Plants

260.098

Reduce Ozone-Causing Emissions From Three Antiquated Coal-Fired Power Plants: The Texas Medical Association (1) will urge the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to modify the rules of the 2014 State Implementation Plan (SIP) on complying with EPA's present and future ozone standards to allow consideration and tighter regulation of sources of ozone-causing air pollution originating outside the non-attainment counties, specifically the three antiquated coal-fired power plants in Martin Lake, Big Brown, and Monticello; and (2) that if the 2014 SIP does not result in action that reduces ozone levels in the 10 non-attainment counties to levels below present and future EPA standards, TMA will support legislative action or rulemaking that will ensure that by 2018, air-pollution emissions from the three antiquated coal-fired power plants will be reduced to levels allowed from newly built power plants (Res. 304-A-14).
