Mike Quinn and Dan Flynn will present a SWANA Webinar on three topics, including: (1) likely federal legislation on greenhouse gas emissions; (2) latest state/regional efforts; and (3) opportunities for the solid waste industry. Specifically, they will review a couple of the major legislative efforts, like Lieberman/Warner, and also will highlight any greenhouse gas bills for which Senator McCain is a co-sponsor. They will review the current status of California's attempt to get a waiver from EPA to regulate greenhouse gases (important beyond California because a number of states have already indicated that they will sign on to California's program), and RGGI in the Northeast. They will also review EPA's voluntary program on methane gas and look at EPA's Landfill Methane Outreach Program and the CCX offsets program as it relates to landfill methane collection.
