WHO: U.S. Representative James Lankford

            Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt

            William Yeatman, Competitive Enterprise Institute

WHAT: “EPA Regulations and Your Pocketbook” – Panel Discussion and Q&A

WHEN: August 22nd 10:00 – 11:30am

WHERE: Oklahoma City University, Meinders School of Business

                 Gardner Conference Center, room 329

                 26th & McKinley

                 OKC, OK 73106

In addition to those elected officials, attendees will hear from William Yeatman, Assistant Director of the Center for Energy & Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC. Mr. Yeatman will also be releasing an academic study exploring the financial impact of the Oklahoma’s various regional haze settlement agreements. The study will be made available following the forum.

“It’s an honor to host these champions of liberty for a discussion on how President Obama’s EPA has formed a reckless axis with liberal environmental groups to circumvent Congressional authority, and to address how states are beginning to push back against President Obama’s radical environmental agenda in the courts. Undoubtedly, if President Obama gets his way, EPA regulations will force every Oklahoma family, business, charity, church and local government to pay more for their electric bills” stated Matt Ball, Oklahoma Director for the Americans for Prosperity Foundation.
