Presley, PSC challenge air pollution rule
On Sept. 22, Commissioner Brandon Presley announced that the Mississippi Public Service Commission will file suit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the Federal Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia no later than October 7, 2011 to challenge the federal agency’s “Cross-State Air Pollution Rule” that Presley says will cost Mississippi consumers millions through higher power bills if not challenged.
“I’ve never met a rate hike that I like,” Presley said. “It’s common sense to not impose fees that will lead to utility rate hikes in these tough economic times. “We all want the cleanest air and water. And we must do that by finding win-win situations where we protect our natural resources without sticking it to Mississippians pocketbooks.” Presley said.
