When federal agencies like the EPA issue new regulations, they are required to go through a formal rulemaking process. First the EPA proposes a rule, laying out detailed legal and technical justifications for its actions. Next, the EPA solicits public comments on its proposal. Then the EPA has to read through all of the substantive comments and either take them into account or explain why it’s ignoring them. Finally, that final rule is subject to judicial review.....
If Pruitt wants to repeal and replace the Clean Power Plan, he’ll have to go through this whole laborious process all over again. The EPA will have to write an entirely new power plant rule, along with a detailed and legally persuasive explanation of why it’s changing its mind. It will have to respond to millions of comments. And environmental groups are certain to challenge any final rule in court.
