Remember how Gov. Hogan withdrew stronger air quality regulations from printing when he took office this winter?

Well the new regulations which the Governor promised are coming up for comment on Wednesday morning. These new regulations allow owners of old, highly polluting coal burning power plants the ability to keep these plants operating without installing and operating new, effective pollution control equipment or switching to natural gas, which emits lower amounts of pollution. The regulations will be presented to a citizen review board called Air Quality Control Advisory Council, (AQCAC) at the Maryland Department of the Environment hearing room at 9 am on August 5th. MDE is in the Montgomery Park Building at 1800 Washington Blvd., Baltimore, MD. If you or someone you love enjoys breathing, you may want to attend.
