Emission Rules in NY

The Poughkeepsie Journal:
To further Gov. George Pataki's regional effort to reduce pollution that causes global warming, New York Tuesday released a preliminary draft of rules to regulate carbon dioxide emitted by power plants.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative in New York would set up a market-based, cap-and-trade program to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants in New York and other Northeastern states. Each state that agreed to join the program will set its own rules.
