Regulatory, Legislative and Judicial actions at both the Federal and State level will continue to have increasingly dramatic effects on your business. NERC's new position as the nationwide Electric Reliability Organization, FERC's Order No. 890, recent Supreme Court rulings and EPA mandates are part of the latest round of changes to be brought on by new laws, regulations and legal precedent at the Federal level.
