Air Quality Summit

March 2, 2015

It's hard to deny that air quality regulations are one of the most important government initiatives impacting business and industry today. To help understand what the latest and likely future air quality requirements will look like, we have assembled three panels consisting of some of the leading federal and state regulators, as well as several industry and air quality planning experts, to provide their perspectives. Our speakers will discuss what these air quality initiatives will look like, how they might affect state, regional, and national economies, and what the operators in the Western U.S. Region should be doing to plan, among other things.
