Oregon’s Congressional delegation is claiming a win in the battle to get federal regulators to look more favorably at biomass. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson is announcing changes in regulations. “The EPA was precariously close to enforcing a new job killing regulation. And with the urging of a bipartisan Congressional effort I think made the right decision in reversing course. Hopefully however, this three year reprieve, while very welcome, does not cast a shadow of uncertainty which will threaten to curb investment and job creation.” Waldon says the EPA will expedite rulemaking to defer the regulation of biomass for three years and promises to address the emissions sensibly and scientifically. The federal agency will also allow the public to comment before new rules are put in place.   Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley says the state is poised to become a leader in biomass and this "common sense" approach is a victory for rural Oregon and timber communities.
