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 ...

Coping With The Risk Of Cancer In Children Living Near Power Lines, Eileen N. Abt 2016 University of New Hampshire

Coping With The Risk Of Cancer In Children Living Near Power Lines, Eileen N. Abt

RISK: Health, Safety & Environment

Ms. Abt briefly summarizes evidence linking power lines with a possible increase in risk of childhood cancer.

Agenda: Flpma Turns 40, University Of Colorado Boulder. Getches-Wilkinson Center For Natural Resources, Energy, And The Environment

FLPMA Turns 40 (October 21)

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) administers approximately 245 million acres of our public lands and yet, for most of our nation's history, these lands seemed largely destined to end up in private hands. Even when the Taylor Grazing Act of 1934 ushered in an important era of better managing public grazing districts and "promoting the highest use of the public lands," such use of our public lands still was plainly considered temporary, "pending its final disposal." It was not until 1976 with the passage of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) that congress adopted a policy ...


Clean Energy Federalism, Felix Mormann 2016 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Clean Energy Federalism, Felix Mormann

Florida Law Review

Legal scholarship tends to approach the law and policy of clean energy from an environmental law perspective. As hydraulic fracturing, renewable energy integration, nuclear reactor (re)licensing, transport biofuel mandates, and other energy issues have pushed to the forefront of the environmental law debate, clean energy law has begun to emancipate itself. The emerging literature on clean energy federalism is a symptom of this emancipation. This Article adds to that literature by offering two case studies, a novel model for policy integration, and theoretical insights to elucidate the relationship between environmental federalism and clean energy federalism.

Renewable portfolio standards and ...
