Energy Policy Now: "Pennsylvania Effort to Join RGGI Faces Legal, Political Peril"
The University of Pennsylvania's Kleinman Center for Energy Policy podcast invites RFF Research Associate Maya Domeshek to discuss a new report she coauthored about the effects of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative on Pennyslvania.
"Authors of a recent report on the expected economic and climate impacts of Pennsylvania’s participation in RGGI discuss their findings and explore the political and legal battles that are now taking place over the market’s future in the state. That future may ultimately lie in the hands of a newly elected governor who inherited RGGI from his predecessor, but who has yet to publicly commit to the market’s development. But first, a state court must render its decision on the legality of Pennsylvania’s participation in the RGGI market.
Angela Pachon is research director at the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy. Maya Domeshek is a research associate at Resources for the Future. Their recent report, “The Prospects for Pennsylvania as a RGGI Member” is a joint publication of the Kleinman Center and Resources for the Future."
