Currently, the EPA has opposed two very different plans for what to do with coal ash, a waste product that coal leaves us with. This is a toxic substance that can be very harmful to humans. One plan calls for states and such to deal with it on there own and classifying it as a non-hazardous waste. The other plan calls for it to be a hazardous waste and for the EPA to regulate it. This is the plan that should happen considering the environmental and human damage is causes. Tell the EPA to make it a hazardous waste today.

Also, it looks like you will be able to view the sessions on demand after the fact if you can not make it on the day, you just need to make sure that you are registering beforehand.
