Murray Energy Corporation V. Mccarthy, Sarah M. Danno

Public Land and Resources Law Review

Holding that the widespread effects of environmental regulation on the coal industry constituted sufficient importance, the Northern District of West Virginia ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to conduct analysis on employment loss and plant reduction resulting from regulatory effects. In admonishing the EPA’s inaction, the court ruled that the Agency had a non-discretionary duty to evaluate employment and plant reduction. Furthermore, the court held that the EPA’s attempt to put forth general reports in place of required evaluations was an invalid attempt to circumvent its statutory duty.


Footing The Bill For Natural Gas Leaks: Why States Should Limit Cost Recovery Of Lost And Unaccounted For Gas, Liam Holland 2017 Boston College Law School

Footing The Bill For Natural Gas Leaks: Why States Should Limit Cost Recovery Of Lost And Unaccounted For Gas, Liam Holland

Boston College Law Review

State statutes prohibit unjust or unreasonable natural gas utility rates. Public Utility Commissions (“PUCs”) administer these state laws and permit gas distribution companies to recover natural gas commodity costs related to lost and unaccounted for gas from customers through “purchased gas adjustment clauses.” In most of those states, PUCs permit "total recovery" of all lost and unaccounted for gas costs via these clauses using periodic rate adjustments. A small number of PUCs have reformed purchase gas adjustment clauses in order to incentivize gas distribution companies to reduce lost and unaccounted for gas. This Note advocates for all state public utility ...

On Local Fracking Bans: Policy And Preemption In New Mexico, Alex Ritchie 2017 University of New Mexico School of Law

On Local Fracking Bans: Policy And Preemption In New Mexico, Alex Ritchie

Alex Ritchie

In the midst of the hydraulic fracturing revolution, elected officials in Mora County, New Mexico recently banned all oil and gas production within the county. But the officials went even further, stripping corporations of constitutional rights and declaring the constitutions of the United States and the state of New Mexico illegal if interpreted as inconsistent with the ordinance. Why would a small rural county like Mora with no oil and gas operations to speak of adopt such an extreme ordinance? This article applies economics, political choice, and localism theories to argue that Mora County’s decision may be at least ...


Siting Technology, Land-Use Energized, Steven Ferrey 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Siting Technology, Land-Use Energized, Steven Ferrey

Catholic University Law Review

Jurisdiction for the siting of electric power plants is vested in the fifty states, four territories, and thousands of local governments. Further complicating this scheme is federal government’s exclusive authority over certain transactions originating from these facilities. Against this backdrop of often divergent and conflicting laws, this article compiles a multijurisdictional review of the jurisdictional issues surrounding the regulation of electric power. Employing multiple state by state surveys, this paper compares electric power siting laws, the interactions between federal, state, and municipal authorities, and the mechanics of regulatory structures across the United States.

The Road Less Travelled: The Maine Energy Cost Reduction Act, Econmic Federalism, And A Modern Approach To Preemption Analysis Under The Natural Gas Act Of 1938, Benjamin T. Mccall

Maine Law Review

The saying “you can’t get there from here” is as authentically Maine as blueberries or lobster. Made famous in the mid-20th century by the storytelling troupe Bert and I, the colloquial phrase typifies the quirkiness and with that one often encounters north and east of the New Hampshire border. Despite the attempt at humor, the saying is apropos when one considers Maine’s position in both New England and the country. Being at the end of the line certainly has its advantages, among them being hundreds of square miles of untamed forest, and a bevy of natural resources that ...

Fracking is happening and local governments are subjected to many of its associated risks. They either need to act, or know—clearly and convincingly—why they should not. The federal government has stopped far short of comprehensive regulation of fracking; the states’ regulations range from fair to poor, sometimes preempting local regulation but most often sharing regulatory authority over land use impacts.


The Economic Impacts Of California’S Major Climate Programs On The San Joaquin Valley, Betony Jones, Ethan Elkind, Kevin Duncan, Marilee Hanson 2017 Donald Vial Center on Employment in the Green Economy

The Economic Impacts Of California’S Major Climate Programs On The San Joaquin Valley, Betony Jones, Ethan Elkind, Kevin Duncan, Marilee Hanson

Center for Law, Energy & the Environment Publications

The San Joaquin Valley plays a critical role in shaping California’s climate policy and is worthy of study due to its function as a bellwether of the state’s transition to a low-carbon economy. Reducing emissions is vitally important for the San Joaquin Valley. The Valley’s topography traps pollution, and air quality and the resulting health conditions are far worse in the Valley than in other region of the state. The region also faces more socioeconomic challenges than the state as a whole. Thus the Valley is vulnerable to both climate change and to climate policy. If policymakers ...
