If implementation of the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule is not delayed, “I have no doubt in my mind that this rule will result in reliability issues and rolling outages in Texas,” Donna Nelson said at the start of the commission’s meeting.

The rule, issued in early July by the Environmental Protection Agency, would require substantial reductions in emissions of nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide at power plants in 27 states.

Gina McCarthy, an EPA assistant administrator, said in a previous statement that power plants in the state “will be able to cut their pollution without jeopardizing reliable electricity service for Texans.”
