Senator Organizes Symposium For Coal Regulation

Posted: Updated:

The head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was in North Dakota last week, but this week North Dakota leaders gathered in Washington D.C. to continue the discussion of new coal regulation.

Senator Heidi Heitkamp organized the Coal Technology Symposium, to bring North Dakota's coal perspective to senators and other energy experts.

Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk attended the symposium along with representatives from the University of North Dakota, and Saskatchewan.

"What I hope to accomplish going forward is to work with other commissioners around the country so they understand the importance of these CO2 rules to their region as well as North Dakota. The perfect goal for me would be to let North Dakota decide what the rules for CO2 were going to be," says Kalk.

The proposed rules would limit the amount of carbon dioxide that coal burning power plants can release. Companies and energy leaders can still send comments to the EPA regarding those rules.
