CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A regional manager with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will join health experts, labor leaders and environmental advocates at a hearing on President Barack Obama’s new plan to order big and lasting cuts in the pollution discharged by power plants.

The hearing Monday night in Concord comes about two months after the Obama administration announced a plan to force a 30 percent cut in carbon dioxide emissions by the 2030 from 2005 levels.

Those attending the hearing include Cynthia Green from the EPA, officials with the state Department of Environmental Services and public health officials. It is being organized by Environment New Hampshire, the League of Conservation Voters and other groups.
