What kind of legislature is there to make sure the coal industry stays honest?

    The Clean Air Act is a piece of legislation that has been in effect for over 40 years to protect the health of the American people and the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (the branch of federal government that enforces the Clean Air Act) settled with the coal industry earlier this year to shut down 18 of the dirtiest coal-fired boilers in Tennesseee, Kentucky, and Alabama. In cooperation with the Tennesee Valley Authority, the EPA agreed to spend $3-$5 billion over the next 10 years to install pollution controls at 36 other units  and invest $350 million in energy efficiency and renewable energy products (The New York Times Company, 2011).
