Climate Change Legislation and Revenue Recycling

Tue, 16 Sep 2008 12:00:00 GMT

Clean Air-Cool Planet and the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invite you to a policy discussion to explore how revenues generated through potential climate change legislation can be recycled through the tax code to lower the overall societal cost of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. During debate of climate legislation on the Senate floor earlier this year, use of generated revenues was a significant area of discussion.

The expert panel will include a Member of Congress who has sponsored climate change legislation that provides for revenue recycling; a senior analyst from the Congressional Budget Office who has written extensively about the design of efficient climate change legislation; a leading academic; and experts from two think tanks.

Panelists:

  • Rep. John Larson (D-CT), Member, House Ways and Means Committee
  • Terry Dinan, PhD, Senior Advisor for Climate Policy, Congressional Budget Office
  • Kenneth P. Green, PhD, Resident Scholar, American Enterprise Institute
  • Robert Repetto, PhD, Senior Fellow, UN Foundation
  • Robert J. Shapiro, PhD, Chairman of Sonecon, LLC; former Under Secretary of Commerce for Economic Affairs

Continental breakfast will be served.
