Peter Hsiao is co-chair of the American Law Institute Clean Air Act ("CAA") Conference, one of the largest CAA conferences in the country.

In the hot political climate of Obama’s second term, practitioners are eager to learn how the Obama Administration will prioritize legislation that will impact environmental, energy, and economic policy. The Clean Air Act remains essential to the controversial debate over public health, job growth, and protection of the environment, but what can you expect in the months to come - aggressive rulemaking or retreat from enforcing the existing laws? How will the government resolve the tension between science and policy? And how will your practice be affected by the most significant items on the rulemaking agenda, such as:

  • New Source Performance Standards, including Greenhouse Gas standards for new electric utilities and refineries
  • National Ambient Air Quality Standards revisions for PM2.5 and ozone
  • Revisions to National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for electric utilities and industrial boilers
  • Further consideration of ozone transport in the wake of the D.C. Circuit’s invalidation of the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule program

Attend this cutting-edge program for a comprehensive analysis of the most complex issues faced by regulators and practitioners. This Clean Air Act CLE Course is enriched by the expertise of a diverse faculty of senior public officials including staff from the United States Congress, federal and state regulators, enforcement attorneys, private and corporate practitioners, and public interest advocates.
