EJ at the EPA: Legal Impacts of the New Priorities
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has made Expanding the Conversation on Environmentalism and Working for Environmental Justice a top priority. On July 26, 2010, Agency officials issued EPA’s Interim Guidance on Considering Environmental Justice During the Development of an Action that is intended to help Agency staff incorporate environmental justice considerations into the development and implementation of regulations. One day later, on July 27, the Agency issued the Draft Plan EJ 2014 and sought the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council’s advice on Incorporating Environmental Justice Concerns into the EPA Permitting Process.
During the Environmental Law Institute's EJ at the EPA: Legal Impacts of the New Priorities on January 12, 2011, the panel will discuss the ways and extent to which these initiatives are likely to impact EPA regulatory and permitting activities, and the questions that these initiatives have raised from various stakeholders in the legal and policy community.
