Richard Revesz testifies before House Energy subcommittee on greenhouse gas regulation

The House Energy & Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Energy and Power held a hearing on October 22 examining the legal issues relating to the Environmental Protection Agency's carbon dioxide regulations for new and existing power plants.

Richard Revesz, Lawrence King Professor of Law and dean emeritus, testified at the hearing, entitled “EPA’s CO2 Regulations for New and Existing Power Plants: Legal Perspectives.” In his remarks, he argued that EPA’s Clean Power Plan is well-justified under the Clean Air Act and the Constitution, and "not an unprecedented power grab by the current administration, as opponents argue."
