EPA’s Mercury Rules: VT Law School Expert Available to Comment

December 16, 2011

SOUTH ROYALTON, VT -- Vermont Law School Associate Professor Teresa Clemmer is available to comment on the EPA's new rules to limit mercury and other toxic air pollution from power plants. The rules are to be announced Friday.

Clemmer, a nationally known expert on air pollution, can be reached at 802.831.1136 or tclemmer@vermontlaw.edu

The EPA's new rules would require power plants that burn coal to cut more than 90 percent of the mercury from their exhaust within three years. The plants also would have to cut arsenic, acid gases and other pollutants that cause premature deaths, respiratory and heart disease and cancer.
