The MSBA's Public Utilities Law Section jointly with the Environmental, Natural Resources and Energy Law Section Present
"Making Sense of the EPA Greenhouse Gas Regulations"
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently enacted regulations to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act. These regulations affect new and modified sources.
The EPA may also enact regulations affecting existing sources. Much uncertainty remains regarding implementation of these new regulations. Professor Hari Osofsky from the University of Minnesota Law School will provide an overview and Mary Jo Roth from Great River Energy will discuss impacts to utilities.
Hari Osofsky, is a tenured Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota Law School. She co-edited a book on climate change litigation and has a casebook on climate change law and policy forthcoming. She is also a member of the Climate Legacy Initiative's Consultants Working Group and the International Law Association's Committee on the Legal Principles of Climate Change.
Mary Jo Roth manages the environmental program for Great River Energy, a 28-member electric cooperative and Minnesota's second largest electric utility. She is responsible for the company's environmental policy, compliance and stewardship.
