Debrief of the Supreme Court’s Oral Argument on EPA's GHG Rulemakings

Date & Time: Tuesday, February 25, 2014 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

CLE Credit: No

Event Description
After the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit upheld the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources, several states and industry groups appealed to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court granted certiorari solely on a question it formulated: “[w]hether EPA permissibly determined that its regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from new motor vehicles triggered permitting requirements under the Clean Air Act for stationary sources that emit greenhouse gases.” Depending on how the Court treats the breadth of this question, the Court's decision could have small or significant effects on EPA's requirement that certain stationary industrial sources obtain prevention of significant deterioration or Title V operating permits for greenhouse gas emissions. The Supreme Court hears argument on the challenge on February 24, 2014.

Join our distinguished panelists on February 25 to discuss and dissect the previous day's oral argument and the implications of the potential outcomes for clients and policy moving forward.
