WASHINGTON, D.C. (WYMT)- Several high-profile Kentucky politicians want Environmental Protection Agency officials to hold public meetings in the Commonwealth.
The seven republican members of Kentucky's congressional delegation sent a letter to EPA Administrator Gina Mccarthy this week, asking her to set up public listening sessions in regard to new agency rules on coal-fired power plants. EPA officials are scheduled to hold 11 such meetings on the matter, but the letter states “none” of the meetings will take place in the ten states most dependent on coal for power. Third District Congressman John Yarmuth was the only member of Kentucky' congressional delegation not to sign the letter.
