Monthly Climate Change Briefing: March 2018


March 12, 2018



Staying on top of the legal and policy developments in the climate change arena is no small task. As a special service to our 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 to be addressed in this month's call:

  • What's happening in the states, including setbacks in OR and WA on carbon tax legislation and  examples of surprising states (Kentucky) providing new adaptation tools and resources
  • Recent rulemaking developments at BLM and EPA on methane
  • Comments filed on the EPA ANPR on replacing the CPP
  • Updates on the public nuisance lawsuits brought by cities in CA and NY against fossil fuel companies
  • Updates on some of the pipeline litigation taking place in the southeast
  • DC Circuit's dismission of lawsuit challenging Pres. Trump's 2-for-1 EO
  • Decisions requiring federal agencies to take action on implementing the methane waste prevention rule and certain energy efficiency standards
  • Quick updates on cases involving NEPA and ESA
