Panelists include Tom O'Neill, General Counsel and SVP of Regulatory and Energy Policy at Exelon and Becky Stanfield, Deputy Director for Policy for the Midwest Region of the National Resources Defense Council.  The panel will be moderated by Mark Templeton, Director of the Abrams Environmental Law Clinic.  Chipotle will be provided.
