On April 22, 1997, the EPA Administrator signed a new rule that subjects utilities to the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) beginning in calendar year 1998. EPA's estimate of the cost impact on utilities is $44.9 million in the first year and $29.4 million in each subsequent year. (Our experience is that EPA's cost estimates are always low.)
