The Center for Progressive Reform hosts periodic conferences and briefing sessions on a range of environmental, health and safety issues, often examined through a regulatory lens.

Clean Power Plan Webinar

On September 27, 2016, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, sitting en banc, heard arguments in a historic lawsuit challenging the EPA's Clean Power Plan, the rule designed to curb climate change-inducing pollution from existing power plants throughout the nation. The D.C. Circuit will likely take weeks, even months to hand down its decision. In the meantime, legal and policy experts from across the political spectrum will sift through the arguments and briefs, seeking insights into the court's likely decision.

On October 6, four of those experts joined in an online panel discussion co-sponsored by the Center for Progressive Reform (CPR) and the Hoover Institution.
