March 23, 2022, 12- 1:30 PM, $15 for WCL members, Register here

Presented by: WBADC, Energy and Environmental Law Forum

The Biden Administration has strongly focused on mitigating climate change and improving air quality in overburdened communities. What role can enforcement of the Clean Air Act (CAA) play in meeting these twin goals? Mary Greene, the new Director of EPA’s powerful Air Enforcement Division, will speak to enforcement priorities, policies, and the role of enforcement in creating clear and enforceable EPA rules. Ms. Greene will be joined by panelists from the Department of Justice, the private sector, and a prominent CAA-focused NGO. Don’t miss the opportunity for this discussion of the future of air pollution enforcement and how new priorities can impact climate change and environmental justice communities.
