EPA's "Mission Creep"
impacts to State's Rights and Coal's Role
William Yeatman, Assistant Director, Center for Energy and Environment,
Competitive Enterprise Institute
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 ~ 2-3 pm Eastern
A reasonable and practical objective of the EPA and the states working together in the environmental arena is to effectively balance economic progress with environmental protection. It is increasingly difficult to realize such a noble - and perhaps overly simple – goal, yet any such policy assessments and outcomes really should accomplish just that. What are the impacts of the changing balance of power between EPA and the states, and how can this be addressed?
Join us as we welcome Will Yeatman of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and author of the June, 2013 report entitled "The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Assault on State Sovereignty” for the American Legislative Exchange Council. The report’s findings will be discussed, and topics will include:
• How the EPA’s measures increase its power at the expense of the states, impacting their ability to attract and retain industry
• Impacts of pending rules on water and ozone, and proposed rules on carbon
• Collateral damage to coal and to fuel choices available for electric generation
• Proposed policy pathway
