If you are interested in attorney general work on climate, environmental protection, clean energy, and environmental justice, the State Energy & Environmental Impact Center’s website is a resource you should know about.
Just relaunched at stateimpactcenter.org, it has a number of exciting features. The AG Actions Database contains over 700 items cataloging AG comments, briefs, and lawsuits. There are nearly 100 from 2022 so far in the database. You can filter and search the content to see AG activity at different agencies, in their states, and in court.
State Involvement in 2022*
There are 102 actions in the database from January 1, 2022 through May 25, 2022, including 35 federal-level actions and 67 state-level actions.
*We strive to include all relevant AG activity, but cannot guarantee that the data presented from the database is comprehensive.
Expanding AG EJ Practice discusses how AGs are incorporating environmental justice into their work. This joint project with WE ACT for Environmental Justice explores state-level mapping projects, as well as how different offices are taking up EJ work. The resource currently features EJ work in California, New Jersey, Illinois, New Mexico, Virginia, and Washington. Check back for updates on additional states and new media coverage of state EJ work.
Another resource, Tracking Transmission Reform, is a go-to source of information on what the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is doing on electric transmission policy – and these days, it’s a lot. Take a deeper dive into FERC work with our FERC Judicial Review Tracker or check out our FERC-related events to learn more about this agency with such a prominent role in clean energy and climate policy.
Please drop us a line if you have any questions, want to suggest something we should add, or think we should work together.
The Center is particularly grateful to the communications team, Carlos Minaya, Tiernaur Anderson, and Soni Chaturvedi, for their work and creativity on this project.
