EPA looks to tighten timing on SO2 limits
The US Environmental Protection Agency has proposed more stringent limits on sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions. Allison Wood, environmental lawyer with the firm's Washington office, noted the market implications of the proposed changes are unclear at this time because states have to make determinations about which facilities must comply and it may take years before that information is known. Wood's practice focuses on environmental and administrative law, with an emphasis on air issues, including global climate change, emissions trading, and the establishment and implementation of national ambient air quality standards.
