WASHINGTON, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey will discuss the rapidly evolving legal case challenging the Obama Administration's Clean Power Plan at a National Press Club Newsmaker news conference on Mon., May 23, at 3 p.m., in the Club's Bloomberg Room. Just this week, the DC Circuit, which was scheduled to hear argument in the case in early June, decided to take the unusual step of bypassing an initial 3-judge panel hearing and going directly to an en banc hearing before the entire court in September. It is a step that has only happened once before and, when coupled with the never-before issued Supreme Court stay of the Clean Power Plan, has highlighted the magnitude of the stakes in this case.
Morrissey, who has coordinated a coalition of 30 states opposing the rule, will be joined by former EPA Air Office head Jeff Holmstead, now an industry attorney representing the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) in the case, and utility policy analyst Christine Tezak of ClearView Energy. Veteran E&E News utility reporter Rod Kuckro will moderate.
The National Press Club is located on the 13th floor of the National Press Building, 529 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C. Like all Newsmakers event, this news conference is open to credentialed media and NPC members, free of charge. No advance registration is required.
