Clean Power Plan

Crowell & Moring's Lorenzen says rule will not survive legal challenges

As states consider next steps following the Supreme Court's stay of U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan, what is the legal future of the rule? During today's OnPoint, Thomas Lorenzen, a partner at Crowell & Moring and a former assistant chief in the Department of Justice's Environment and Natural Resources Division, discusses how parties involved in the pending litigation may be adjusting their strategies as a result of the stay. He also gives his perspective on how recent events could impact President Obama's climate legacy. (This interview was recorded before the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.)
