Harvey Reiter to Present at Minnesota State Bar Association Public Utilities Meeting
Harvey Reiter will be a featured speaker at the Minnesota State Bar Association's Public Utilities Meeting on "State & Federal Jurisdiction over Energy & Telecommunications Services: Who's Authority Prevails?" The meeting will take place March 30, 2016 at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Harvey's presentation will offer insight into the Dormant Commerce Clause and how it applies in analyzing constitutionality of state renewable portfolio standards. He will discuss the limitations, the discretion left to state and local governments to promote local industries, and how the Dormant Commerce Clause can be seen as a consumer safeguard in achieving renewables goals, rather than an impediment.
