Diane X. Burman, Department of Public Service Commissioner, as the keynote luncheon speaker.

Larry Eisenstat is a panelist at this event. His topic: "State and Federal Jurisdiction Issues."

In the current session, the U.S. Supreme Court has taken three cases challenging state and federal energy initiatives —  FERC v. Electric Power Supply Assn., the Order 745 Case decided  January 25, 2016, plus PPL Energyplus v. Nazarian and PPL Energyplus v. Hanna (consolidated by the Supreme Court as Hughes v. PPL Energyplus, LLC).  The Panel will address whether at the end of the present Supreme Court session there will be clear guidance for the appropriate roles of federal and state regulators in the 21st century energy industry or whether the current uncertainty will persist, leading state and federal regulators to skirmish over emerging energy issues. The Panel will also address the implications of these scenarios for various constituents and stakeholders.

This is a CLE credit event. Participating comes with a cost ($115 general registration).

This is a New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) event under the Business Law Section and is co-sponsored by other sections.
