BPC's Energy Project is hosting a public workshop on December 6 about key policy design considerations for the regulation of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from existing power plants under section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act. The event will also explore the use of economic modeling to understand the potential impacts of GHG regulations.
BPC recently released a macroeconomic study of immigration reform that showed immigration reform would produce powerful economic benefits for the U.S. economy. Notably, the study showed that immigration reform would jump-start the housing market by increasing spending on residential construction by an average of $68 billion annually over a 20-year period.
Two panels will address critical issues:
- Who, how, when? Who provides private capital, how is it provided, and when does it attach?
- Rates and monitoring: Assessing the impact of private capital
Join BPC for the first in a series of events leading up to the July 2014 event to commemorate 10 years since the release of the 9/11 Commission report. We will evaluate the state of intelligence reforms since the 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act, determining if in the post-Snowden era, our intelligence capabilities are where they need to be to meet the threat facing our nation.
