On Monday, the Anderson Economic Group released a report detailing four potential regulatory scenarios that could emerge once legal challenges against the CPP are resolved.
“Possible outcomes of a CPP ruling extend beyond simply upholding the rule or striking it down,” Anderson Economic Group's Public Policy Director and report co-author Alex Rosaen said in a statement. “There are a number of ways that federal carbon regulation could play out. Businesses and consumers would benefit most from a carbon strategy that holds up under many scenarios.”
The four possible CPP regulatory scenarios include “leaving the final rule intact; delaying implementation and re-setting emissions goals; amending the CPP to provide an emissions credit for new sources; and replacing the CPP with a statutory national tradable permit scheme,” according to the report.
