The Clean Power Plan Goes to Court


The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral arguments on September 27 in a case challenging the Clean Power Plan, the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulation limiting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing power plants. The hearing by the full court is the first time judges will hear arguments on the merits of the rule. Many expect the circuit court decision will be appealed to, and may ultimately be heard by, the Supreme Court. The Clean Power Plan is on hold while it makes its way through the legal system.

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center on October 4 for a panel discussion inviting legal experts to unpack the arguments presented to the circuit court and to read the tea leaves on the judges’ questions and reactions.
