The Overwhelming Case for Clean Air Act Reform

November 2013

Citation: 43 ELR 10969

Issue: 11

Author: Bill Pedersen and David Schoenbrod

Congress designed the current CAA around two fundamental misunderstandings about air pollution, misunderstandings that make the statute clumsy and that hinder further attempts at emissions reductions. The authors describe a new approach that could solve these problems and allow Congress to dramatically streamline the CAA. They conclude with a word on GHG control.

Bill Pedersen is Of Counsel to the law firm of Perkins Coie. David Schoenbrod is Trustee Professor of Law at New York Law School and a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.
