Environmental Law Institute – West Virginia v. EPA: The EPA’s Climate Authority

On February 28th, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for the landmark West Virginia v. EPA case, involving the scope of powers delegated to the Environmental Protection Agency through the Clean Air Act. The Supreme Court’s decision will affect administrative law, as it will determine whether Congress has constitutional authority to delegate broad regulatory power to federal agencies. This outcome could have major consequences for environmental law; particularly, it will decide the EPA’s power to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, potentially limiting the agency’s power to take action on climate change.

Join the Environmental Law Institute and expert panelists to discuss this important case. What are the arguments each side will be making? How will this impact environmental law and administrative law? What long-term effects can we expect? Why did the Supreme Court take this case, and do the experts have any predictions for how it will play out? Expert panelists will discuss these questions and so much more.
