ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the statutory authority of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to implement the CO2 Budget Training program. In 2005, the State of New York announced plans to implement the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a cap-and-trade program for carbon dioxide. Questions on the authority of the DEC to regulate carbon dioxide emissions through the cap-and-trade program without authorization from the legislature, were raised.
