Roy S. Belden, Clean Air Act, ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources, 2011, Second Edition.
Since its enactment in 1970, the Clean Air Act “has spawned over 13,500 pages of regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations [and] new regulations are continuing to be developed” according to the author. He notes that practicing in the area “often requires added vigilance due to its complexity and the fact that many of the applicable statutory and regulatory provisions typically are subject to numerous [EPA], state, and local regulatory guidance interpretations, which may or may not be readily available.” As a result, the goal of this practice guide is to provide an overview and a starting point for addressing Clean Air Act concerns.
