EPA head to throw out coal restrictions

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- The head of the Environmental Protection Agency said he's throwing out restrictions on coal-fired plants, which were aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Clean Power Plan was put in place by the Obama Administration and required states to make changes to reduce emission standards.

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said the restrictions exceed his agency's authority.

 Pruitt said he'll now seek input on how to replace the Clean Power Plan.
