"Mar 24: The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) joined a legal brief supporting construction of a new power plant in Utah, arguing the U.S. EPA's permitting process should not be turned into a regulatory tool to control carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In an amicus brief submitted to the EPA’s Environmental Appeals Board, NAM endorses the EPA’s 2007 approval of a preconstruction permit for the Bonanza coal-fired power plant sought by the Deseret Power Electric Cooperative. The Sierra Club has appealed the approval, arguing that the EPA must limit CO2 emissions in the permit. The American Petroleum Institute and U.S. Chamber of Commerce joined the NAM in filing the brief in the appeals proceeding, In re: Deseret Power Cooperative (PSD Appeal No. 07-03)."
