Can FERC Act As A Check On EPA's Climate Rule?

8:30 a.m. -- Conservative lawmakers are hoping that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission can limit the scope and impact of the president's climate rule. And the testimony by Cheryl LaFleur, the commission's acting chairwoman, prepared for a hearing convened by the House Energy and Commerce Energy and Power Subcommittee on Tuesday might give them hope. LaFleur says that "FERC can and should help the EPA understand the implications that...regulations may have on electric reliability." LaFleur then describes how the two agencies worked together when EPA was enforcing another air pollution standard. But, based on past precedent, it seems more likely that FERC will offer assistance rather than pushback when it comes to EPA's implementation of the climate rule.
