Kentucky Power Company Faces Hefty Fine

A Kentucky power company accused of violating the "Clean Air Act" faces a fine of 11.4 million dollars.

Federal environmental regulators are asking a court to approve the fine against East Kentucky Power Cooperative.

The EPA says two generators at the power plant in Clark County did not comply with the Federal Acid Rain Program.

The EPA says the fine is the largest ever under the Clean Air Act's Acid Rain Program.
