The Obama administration will take a first step on Wednesday to regulate emissions from airplanes, expanding its reach beyond automobiles and power plants in a campaign to fight climate change.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will propose a finding, subject to public comment, that the burning of jet fuel poses a danger to human health and welfare. It also will announce plans to write a rule to limit or offset such emissions, according to the person briefed by the agency who requested anonymity to discuss the decision.
Environmental groups have pushed the EPA for years to regulate aircraft emissions. President Barack Obama, who has made fighting climate change a top priority of his final years in office, is also planning to limit emissions from heavy-duty trucks.
