Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
While it may not always be celebrated as such, it is important to remember why it was created and pay respects to the American workers who don't always receive the credit they deserve. See below for articles detailing the history and meaning of this iconic holiday.

D.C. Circuit Strikes Down EPA Delay of Risk Management Program Rule
D.C. Circuit Strikes Down Coal Combustion Residual (CCR) Provisions; EPA to Rework Rule
Impact: potentially significant impact to active and inactive unlined and clay-lined coal ash impoundments, likely requiring closure or retrofit.
The D.C. Circuit recently struck down parts fo the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) rule for not being sufficiently protective of the environment. The decision will likely require closure or retrofitting of all unlined and clay impoundments, unless EPA is able to address the Court's concerns.
On August 21, 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its proposed replacement for the Clean Power Plan (CPP), the
Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, which would regulate greenhouse gas emissions at existing coal-fired power plants.
The ACE Rule includes three elements:
Replacing the CPP with new emission guidelines for CO2 emissions from existing EGUs
Revising implementing regulations to guide the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and states on this and future Section 111(d) rulemakings
Revisions to the New Source Review (NSR) program for power plants
