Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative

An environmental law expert says the EPA retains substantial authority to regulate emissions.

Observers are expecting legal challenges to Pa.’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

Opponents say joining RGGI will be an economic hardship on the state’s energy sector.

The initiative with 11 other states would charge power plants for carbon dioxide they emit.

Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who’s running for governor, has said he has reservations about the plan.
