Implications of the D.C. Circuit Court Decision in EPA Cross-State Air Pollution Rule

The August 21, 2012 decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to vacate EPA’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule marks a material interpretation of EPA’s authority under the Clean Air Act – an “unsettling” departure from judicial restraint (according to the dissent). To consider what this means for power producers and other energy market participants, Cadwalader will hold a teleconference discussion on Tuesday, September 4, from 3:00-4:00pm ET, about the implications of this important decision.

The call will feature guest speakers Lee Van Atta and Ronald Moe of SAIC and Matthew Mazzucchi of Houlihan Lokey, who will address the impact vacating CSAPR has on earnings and capital expenditures of generators, which still face material costs for compliance with a gauntlet of EPA regulation, including: Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS or Utility MACT), proposed Cooling Water Intake Structures regulation, proposed disposal of Coal Combustion Residuals regulation, and proposed Greenhouse Gas regulations.
