EPA Official Questions VET Elimination Plans in Northern KY.
According to the paper, Wegman said in order for Kentucky to receive EPA approval for VET elimination, state officials will have to prove that other clean air measures can provide equivalent emissions reductions.
"We are not going to just let them drop the measure, which we feel has some air quality benefits," said Wegman. "They'll have to go out and find some other reductions to substitute if they can."
The paper noted that officials with the Kentucky Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet (EPPC) expressed their optimism in developing a plan, by August 1, detailing how northern Kentucky will meet federal clean air requirements without VET.
"We are confident that if our proposed revisions are based on sound science, EPA will approve them," said EPPC secretary LaJuana Wilcher.
