Overview

Thirteen pieces of federal legislation that require sulfur emission reductions by power plants and other coal-burning fa­cilities are currently pending.

This book is drawn from the first con­ference to address the issue of what the costs of compliance with this legislation will be, with a special emphasis on the Midwest region. A major coal-producing area, the Midwest economy will suffer significantly in terms of goods and ser­vices produced with electricity and in jobs lost.

The participants represent utility, coal, and transportation industries, as well as academia, environmentalists, state and federal regulatory agencies, and the United Mine Workers of America. The critical issues they address include eco­nomic modeling and forecasting the re­sults of acid rain legislation, the effects on transportation, air pollution control and the environment, state and federal regulations, and a search for solutions.
