North Carolina’s state Senate on Wednesday unanimously approved a bill calling for the closure of Duke Energy’s 33 coal ash ponds in the state within 15 years, legislation spurred by a massive spill at a retired power plant earlier this year. Members of the chamber touted the measure as the nation’s toughest law regulating coal ash, a byproduct of coal-based power production that contains toxic materials such as arsenic and lead.
