EPA to begin work on 5 year EJ Plan + disagreements delay NEJAC fence line monitoring recommendation

A recent Bloomberg News article on the March 19 NEJAC meeting, Cap-and-Trade, Fence Line Monitor Concerns Stall Justice Council Advice to EPA on Rules, is well worth reading.

Among the highlights – Charles Lee, EPA’s Deputy Associate Administrator for Environmental Justice, announced that EPA will begin work on the next five year Environmental Justice Plan in April, and controversy erupted regarding proposed fence line monitoring at oil refineries.

I am digging for more information on this issue, and will report on what I find.
