H.R. 1734: Improving Coal Combustion Residuals Regulation Act of 2015

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1734 in the House.

The Improving Coal Combustion Residuals Act of 2015 would outline minimum requirements for state-run permit programs on the management and disposal of coal ash. The bill would grant the Environmental Protection Agency with the authority to check that state permit programs meet the minimum requirements for safe disposal of ash, but otherwise allows state discretion over permits. The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association released this statement expressing appreciation of the codified designation of coal ash as non-hazardous. The bill has been passed in the House by a vote of 258-166 with 239 Republicans and 19 Democrats voting in favor.
