Staying on top of the legal and policy developments in the climate change arena is no small task. As a special service to our institutional members, the Environmental Law Institute provides a series of monthly conference calls with national experts on climate law and policy to keep you up to date and to answer your questions.

Topics addressed in this month's call, focusing on the newly announced CAA 111(d) proposed rules:

  • Assessing the proposed rules: the inevitable litigation – theories, timing, and impacts
  • Georgetown University Climate Center's State Energy Analysis Tool: what the rule allows in terms of building on state programs and how far they have to go
  • How the state-specific goals are constructed in the 111(d) rule
  • The rule for modified/reconstructed plants, which came out on the same day
  • Congressional reaction

Speakers:
Kyle W. Danish, Partner, Van Ness Feldman, LLP
Michael B. Gerrard, Professor, Columbia Law School; Director, Center for Climate Change Law
Gabriel Pacyniak, Associate, Georgetown University Climate Center, Georgetown University Law Center
Manik Roy, ClimateWorks Foundation
