The course explains environmental law practice before the relevant agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, including the rulemaking process and "sue and settle," the appeals process, and enforcement and litigation. This course is intended for new energy lawyers practicing environmental law and energy transaction lawyers who need an overview of environmental laws and regulations.

    INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS


    Lawmakers dig into energy overhaul
    The Hill
    Lawmakers on both the House and Senate Energy committees will focus their attention on a slew of bills that could form the basis for a long-awaited comprehensive energy package. Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s, R-Alaska, Energy and Natural Resources Committee held a hearing May 19 on many of the 17 energy bills she introduced earlier this month. The chairwoman said those bills could lay the foundation for an energy overhaul, the first such package since 2007.

    FERC staff: New market assessment sees low summer power prices for US consumers
    Platts
    Ample generation capacity and low natural gas and electricity prices should spell good news for U.S. consumers this summer, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff said in a new market assessment, released May 14. "Fuel prices tend to drive power prices and fuel prices are low," Lance Hinrichs, of FERC's Office of Enforcement, said at the commission's monthly meeting in Washington. "The system is looking to be very adequately supplied," both in terms of generating capacity and fuel, Hinrichs added.
