Oklahoma hit by EPA’s “Good Neighbor” rule

States Covered Under the Power Plants and Other Industries Portions of the Final Good Neighbor Plan



Oklahoma and 22 other states fell under a final new EPA rule requiring industrial facilities and power plants to cut their smog-forming nitrogen oxide emissions.

The “Good Neighbor” plan issued by the Environmental Protection Agency  is expected to ensure Oklahoma and the other states curb NOx emissions that pollute across state lines and will meet obligations for the 2015 Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards reported Reuters.

States ranging from New York to Texas to Nevada fall under the rule.
