BISMARCK, N.D. — The head of the Environmental Protection Agency is getting a firsthand look at North Dakota's booming energy industry. EPA administrator Gina McCarthy also is getting an earful from officials on proposed agency rules on coal and ethanol.

McCarthy traveled to Bismarck and Beulah on Friday to talk about the proposed regulations with North Dakota's congressional delegation and industry officials.

McCarthy says it's an opportunity to see the "intended and unintended consequences" of EPA's policies and proposals that are impacting the state.

U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is hosting McCarthy's visit.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple met with McCarthy on Thursday night to discuss the agency's proposed emissions regulations for power plants and other environmental issues.
