The proposal “would rescind excessive burdens on America’s energy providers and level the playing field so that new energy technologies can be part of America’s future,” acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler told energy lobbyists, free-market advocates, and others gathered at the EPA for the announcement. The carbon-capture requirement EPA is proposing to eliminate is one obstacle to building coal power plants, though economic and market realities have created much higher hurdles that analysts say will endure no matter what the Trump administration does.
