The Earth Institute presents Origins of Environmental Law Lecture Series Description: Introduction to Early Environmental Legislation, Pre-1969.
This seminar is part of a semester-long lecture series entitled The Origins of Environmental Law: Regulation and Evolution. Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling are the two senior staff members who led the Senate environment subcommittee which originated and developed major environmental legislation in the 1970s, including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Superfund Act. Over the course of a single decade, Congress enacted a series of environmental laws that defined the direction and character of environmental policy in the US and globally. Learn about the process that led to these seminal laws from the writers of the legislation themselves.
This lecture explores the Conference with the House Public Works Committee as it relates to the Clean Air Act- how it began, the nature of the political process, and personalities of the committee and other staff. It will go over the role of acting Chair Bob Jones, the House Hearings and Conference with the House, and the role of major federal assistance to construct municipal waste treatment plants.
RSVP is required for this event. Please note this lecture is part of a regularly scheduled course. Guests will join registered students in the class for the lecture and discussion.

In 2013, the government shut down for two weeks unable to agree on virtually anything; but in the 1970's, the United States Congress enacted a series of environmental laws that chartered a new course for our future. The Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Superfund Act are just some of the foundational environmental laws of that time that have shaped vast improvements in the nation's environment - and continue to do so. And yet, no new piece of major environmental legislation has been enacted since the 1990 amendments to the Clean Air Act - almost 25 years ago. What has changed since then?
Join us for a discussion about this unique time in our history from the principal authors of those laws themselves. This fall, Columbia students have a unique opportunity to learn about the historical, legislative, and political process that led to the implementation of these laws in a class taught by Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling, the two senior majority and minority staff members who led the Senate environment subcommittee which originated and developed the legislation. This panel will provide some insight into the legislative and human dynamic in the 1970's versus today, and discuss how public policy shapes how environments and organizations are managed.
6:00-7:15 Introduction, panel discussion and Q&A
Reception to follow.
Open to the public.
