EPA is ready for 2011 Greenhouse Gas Permits

According to an EPA Press release the agency has completed the work necessary to allow large greenhouse gas emitters to get necessary permits to expand or build new facilities.  The permitting is going to be handled by two different methods depending on where the facility is located.  Certain states will have the authority to issue the new permits through state agencies.  The remaining states will be able to receive permits directly through the EPA.  However the EPA is in the process of opposing portions of Texas’s permit process.
