Harrisburg Partner Tony Holtzman will speak on the Pennsylvania Environmental Rights Amendment on Thursday, September 6. During his presentation, he will discuss the history and structure of Article I, Section 27 of the Pennsylvania Constitution (the “Environmental Rights Amendment” or “ERA”). He will also examine the key ERA opinions that courts issued in the years before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, in 2017, issued its opinion in Pennsylvania Environmental Defense Foundation v. Commonwealth (“PEDF”). In addition, Mr. Holtzman will discuss PEDF and explain why it is a transformative decision with regard to ERA jurisprudence. And he will discuss a number of ERA issues that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has yet to resolve.
