Climate Change Legislative and Regulatory Update -- CLE

This ABA, Cleantech & Climate Change Committee (CTC3) Educational Program via teleconference will take place on Thursday, September 23, 2010 / 9:30am PDT; 11:30am CDT; 12:30pm CDT

Only $10!

The conference will cover what will happen now that Congress has tabled comprehensive climate change legislation and the mid-term elections are quickly approaching? Speakers will present on current developments in domestic climate change policy and learn how to prepare amidst the regulatory uncertainty.

Speakers will investigate issues at the federal level, particularly EPA regulation of greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act. Once thought of as a mere political tool to apply pressure to Congress, we will discuss what implementation could actually look like. Additionally, we will discuss the status of California's AB32, the most aggressive U.S. climate policy on the books to date, and the current efforts to repeal the law.

Speakers: Kenneth Markowitz, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, and Michael Steel, Morrison & Foerster LLP
