Interactions between overlapping air quality regulations can have unintended impacts on polluting activities. We identify a potentially important interaction whereby local regulators in areas constrained by one kind of regulation—threshold-based local air quality standards—have an incentive to permit more local pollution in response to a decline in emissions induced by another kind of regulation—rules targeting power plant emissions. Dr. Fowlie will be presenting in person at Bren. Join us in Bren Hall 1414 (masks recommended) or watch online using the link below and passcode "power".
