Acting Environmental Protection Agency administrator Bob Perciasepe reportedly commented that the agency would work with states to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants in 2014, but the EPA is now backpedaling.

Perciasepe told reporters that the agency looks forward to “working with states on existing sources, but we’re not there yet. But that’s certainly something that will be on the table in this next fiscal year.”

However, after E&E Publishing reported on Perciasepe’s comments, the EPA issued a statement saying the agency had no plans to regulating greenhouse gases from existing sources.
