On Tuesday, Nov. 20, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time, APPA will hold a webinar on "Making Sense of the EPA Air Transport (or CSAPR Litigation), Rules and Anticipated EPA Actions." 

This webinar will address the status of litigation on the Environmental Protection Agency's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), also known as the Transport Rule, and its interaction with still-evolving requirements for utilities under the Clean Air Act's regional haze requirements. Attorney Norm Fichthorn with Hunton & Williams LLP will review the August 2012 federal court decision that ruled against EPA's adoption of CSAPR and directed EPA to continue administering CSAPR's predecessor rule (the Clean Air Interstate Rule). He also will look at efforts by certain parties to have the court's decision reconsidered; and will review the current legal status of CSAPR. 

The speaker also will discuss the effects of the CSAPR decision and recent EPA rulemaking actions on regional haze requirements for electric utilities (in particular, the "best available retrofit technology" requirement).

This webinar is worth 0.2 continuing education units, 1.5 professional development hours and 1.5 continuing professional education credits.
