The Utility Solid Waste Activities Group’s (“USWAG”) petitions the Agency for reconsideration of EPA’s final rule titled Rulemaking to Reconsider Provisions of the Coal Combustion Residuals Rule (“CCR Rule”), 80 FR 21302 (April 17, 2015), and requests EPA to seek to hold in abeyance the challenge to the Coal Combustion Residuals Rule, No. 15-1219, et al. (D.C. Cir.).
Specifically, USWAG is seeking reconsideration of those provisions that warrant modification, revision or repeal due to recent legislation fundamentally altering the self-implementing nature of the rule to one implemented through enforceable permit programs, as well as the Administration’s Executive Orders on regulatory reform; to extend the rule’s impending compliance deadlines; and hold the case in abeyance so that the EPA can reconsider its position in the litigation in light of the recent statutory changes and Executive Orders.
