EPA approves Kentucky antidegradation policy

A Kentucky Chamber-supported effort that has taken over 16 years of negotiations between business, environmental groups and the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Kentucky’s antidegradation policy does not substantially change how antidegradation procedures are implemented, but provides legal clarification and justification for the program’s procedures. In that regard, the policy will provide certainty and legal support to a process that has otherwise been previously used by various interests to stop economic development.
