Okla. AG sought delay in regional haze hearing
May 18, 2013 18:13 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A hearing on a new plan by Tulsa-based utility Public Service Co. of Oklahoma to deal with regional haze is to go forward, despite a request for a delay by Attorney General Scott Pruitt.
Pruitt asked the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality to put off the 1 p.m. Monday hearing in Oklahoma City, saying he had concerns about a revised state plan for limiting emissions.
The Oklahoman reports (http://is.gd/oGfxB5 ) PSO gave an earlier estimate that projected the plan would result in an 11 percent rate increase to cover an expected $350 million in costs.
A group of industrial utility users says the plan is more expensive than a federal implementation plan to combat regional haze.
Pruitt says PSO's future power requirements could affect cost estimates.
