Under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act, the Environmental Protection Agency is poised to propose new regulations for CO2 emission reductions from existing power plants. What is the appropriate federalism model for regulation of CO2 emissions under the Section 111(d)?

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt will roll out his new paper, "The Oklahoma Attorney General's Plan: The Clean Air Act Section 111(d) Framework that Preserves States' Rights." The Attorney General's plan for state-level compliance construes federal and state authority under Section 111(d) as follows: EPA designs a procedure and emission guidelines, and States determine the legally enforceable emission standard that is as stringent as the applicable guideline - unless the State determines that circumstances justify imposition of a less stringent emission standard. The Oklahoma Attorney General's Plan institutes a unit-by-unit, "inside the fence" approach to determining State emission standards, and accounts for the practical reality that air quality impacts differ from State to State, as do costs and opportunities for CO2 emission reductions. This approach preserves State primacy and does not turn over management of local generation fleets to EPA; the Oklahoma Attorney General's plan keeps resource planning in the hands of state regulators with specialized expertise and a focus on ratepayer impacts and protection of the public interest.

Attorney General Pruitt's presentation will be followed by a panel discussion of the plan's merits, its understanding of Section 111(d), and its wider implications for State Clean Air Act compliance.

Panelists Include:

Hon. Scott Pruitt, Attorney General, State of Oklahoma

F. William Brownell, Hunton & Williams LLP

Patrick McCormick III, U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee

David Doniger, Natural Resources Defense Council

Moderator: Jeffrey Bossert Clark, Chairman, Federalist Society Environmental Law & Property Rights Practice Group Executive Committee, and Kirkland & Ellis LLP
