APPA will hold a webinar on Wednesday, April 24, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time on "Anticipating and Understanding How EPA Could Regulate CO2 under Sections 111(d) or 115 of the Clean Air Act for the Power Sector."

The Environmental Protection Agency has stated that it intends to issue a proposed guideline document regarding how states should act under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act to address CO2 emissions from existing power plants, including modifications. This action is expected in 2013, along with final action by the EPA on its April 2012 proposed rule seeking to regulate CO2 emissions from new sources under section 111(b) of the Clean Air Act.

In the webinar, Allison Wood, partner with Hunton & Williams, LLP, in Washington, D.C., and outside counsel to APPA, and Theresa Pugh, APPA’s director of environmental services, will address what they believe are the EPA's options for Section 111(d), what EPA may do on its proposed rule for new sources and related issues. The speakers will also address a recent petition for rulemaking that was filed with the EPA seeking to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under numerous provisions of the Clean Air Act, including Section 115 (which addresses international pollution).

A white paper addressing regulation of existing sources under Section 111(d) will be provided to webinar registrants. 

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