The Clean Air Task Force (CTF) released its final report on the Clean Air Omnibus Act (COAA) on Thursday, with the aim of addressing the lingering concerns of environmental advocates.
The bill was initially scheduled to come up for a vote in the Senate in early 2018, but it’s now up for consideration in the House.
The new COAA includes a number of changes to the COAA, including eliminating the COA, eliminating the Clean Water Act, and revising the Clean Technology Fund.
The COAA is also an attempt to make the Clean Power Plan (CPP), which was announced last week, an effective rule rather than a piece of paper.
As part of the legislation, Congress will also be able to review a COAA review report, which will include recommendations for improving the COPA and its rules.
Here’s a look at what the new COA means for the air, water, and environment.
