Texas defies EPA, approves coal-fired plant permit

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas environmental regulators on Wednesday approved a crucial air quality permit that paves the way for construction of a coal-fired power plant in Corpus Christi, defying a request by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to deny the permit.

The three-person Texas Commission on Environmental Quality voted 2-0 to approve the permit for the planned Las Brisas Energy Center, with a few minor modifications. Commissioner Carlos Rubinstein abstained from voting due to being briefed on the permit when he previously served as deputy executive director.

The permit’s approval marked the latest chapter in a feud between the state commission and the EPA. The EPA has taken over parts of Texas’ permitting authority because the state refused to comply with federal demands, and Texas filed several lawsuits challenging EPA rules, insisting they are inefficient, don’t benefit the environment and harm industry.
