The Challenging Road Ahead for Obama's Climate Regulations

Stuart Shapiro, Rutgers University

In his first SSN-sponsored contribution to The Hill, Shapiro explains new Environmental Protection Agency regulations to reduce carbon emissions from existing power plants. State governments, Congress, and the courts will all weigh in as rules are finalized and implemented.

> "Climate Regulations – A Long Road Ahead," Shapiro's July 2, 2014 column at The Hill, draws upon his deep expertise on the politics of regulation in the United States. His second contribution from July 31, "How Much is That Regulation in the Window?," discusses how the public can understand the true cost of regulatory policies.

> Stuart Shapiro does research and media appearances on regulatory challenges and politics at the state and national level. Prior to joining the Bloustein School of Planning and Policy at Rutgers University, Shapiro worked at the U.S. Office of Management and Budget during the administrations of presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Shapiro's Key Findings brief, "Why Do Politicians Pursue Regulatory Reforms?," presents the highlights of his co-authored book (with Debra Borie-Holtz) on The Politics of Regulatory Reform (Routledge, 2013).
