Regulation of greenhouse gases is moving forward in the United
States, with the most prominent efforts underway on at least two
separate tracks. California is implementing A.B. 32 and related
legislation while the federal government is moving forward with
greenhouse gas regulations under the Clean Air Act.
This practitioners’ workshop highlights recent legal developments in
both areas and investigates how this system of dual regulation will
unfold. What are the pitfalls, synergies, and uncertainties of climate
regulation developing in these two different ways?
What You Will Learn
The workshop will look at issues such as:
- the new AB 32 scoping plan;
- the effect of California’s low carbon fuel standard being upheld;
- the role of California’s cap-and-trade program,
including a litigation update, discussion of the new linkage with
Quebec, and the development of the auctions and secondary allowance
- developments under the federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration and New Source Performance Standards programs;
- ways that federal requirements for large stationary sources will interact with state law requirements in California; and
- lessons federal and other state regulators may take from California’s experience.
Who Should Attend
The workshop is intended for those wanting to understand the cutting edge of greenhouse gas regulation in the United States.
