Webinar: Why We Must Protect Clean Air Act Authority in Climate Legislation

While well-designed federal policy to address the threat of climate change and protect our health is urgently needed, there are some legislative proposals being offered which could effectually undermine the efforts to reduce US carbon pollution. In particular, provisions that weaken or remove the EPA’s authority under the Clean Air Act to set carbon pollution standards would undercut a critical and enforceable backstop for reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.

In this PSR webinar, hear from two experts in this field on why we must keep all our climate-fighting tools on the table and not preempt or limit current authorities to reduce the emissions that cause climate change.

Speakers:

  • Ann Weeks, Senior Counsel and Legal Director, Clean Air Task Force
  • Paul Billings, National Senior Vice President of Advocacy, American Lung Association
