PEC To Hold 2nd Environmental Policy Conference In Harrisburg October 13

The PA Environmental Council Friday announced its Second Annual Environmental Policy Conference, which will be held on October 13 at the Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg.
The all-day forum will be focused on the biggest environmental opportunities and challenges facing Pennsylvania, including state implementation of the soon-to-be-announced Federal Clean Power Plan, achieving 2017 pollution reduction goals for the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and how the state should manage infrastructure build-out from natural gas production and use.
Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Quigley will provide the keynote address for the conference.
“The next two to three years are going to rewrite Pennsylvania’s approach to dealing with climate change and water resource protection,” said President and CEO Davitt Woodwell. “As with last year, our aim for the conference is to have an open dialog from key players to get a sense of where our state can go, and what we can accomplish. It’s time to move forward on these issues.”
Last year’s event also featured all four Chairs of the Senate and House Environmental Resources and Energy Committees from the General Assembly. They have been invited to participate again this year.
More information about the conference, including an agenda, will be posted on PEC’s Environmental Policy Conference webpage.  Click Here to register for the Conference.
