EPA Finalizes Tough New Rules on Emissions by Power Plants


EPA finalizes tough new rules on emissions by power plants – The Washington Post.

Although the rules have been under construction for two decades, the Obama administration gets the credit for finalizing them. Let’s hope now that they are implemented as proposed by the EPA. The writing is on the wall: We must go green in energy generation here in New Jersey even if the start-up cost is higher. We must look ahead into the future.

There is another piece of news which I consider noteworthy:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/minimum-essential-health-benefits-will-be-largely-set-by-states/2011/12/16/gIQAx5FHzO_story.html?tid=pm_national_pop`

As New Jersey set up its health exchange, with a public option if I get elected, the state will be able to set its own healthcare baseline.
