EBC Breakfast Program with MEPA Director Deerin Babb-Brott
June 28, 2007 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
Through the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Office, the Secretary of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs conducts environmental impact reviews of certain projects requiring state agency action. Agency actions include granting state permits or licenses, providing state financial assistance, or transferring state land (see below for more information).
What are the implications of the new policy on Greenhouse Gas Emissions (PDF; announced on April 23, 2007) which requires that certain projects undergoing MEPA review quantify their greenhouse gas emissions and identify measures to avoid, minimize or mitigate these emissions?
What is the implication for the MEPA process of the governor’s commitment to Permit Streamlining?
Plan to attend this EBC breakfast program and learn firsthand about the new Patrick administration’s programs, priorities and implementation strategies for the MEPA Office.
