The California State Legislature will consider a number of climate change issues during its 2012 session and will influence many aspects of the cap-and-trade program, including revenue allocations, offset rules and other elements of the program design. This session will provide a unique and rarely-seen look at what the issues are and offer insight into how they may play out.
