Comparison: State vs. Federal

· Rules. Before 2009, little action was taken at the federal level, beyond voluntary initiatives, to implement greenhouse gas (GHG) management strategies ensuring that GHG emissions are accounted for and controlled. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has changed its stance and is initiating actions to monitor and control GHG emissions.

Hawaii has passed legislation and developed regulations at the state level to address GHG emissions. In addition, the state is working with other states to implement regional programs to monitor GHG emissions.

· Administration and enforcement. The Clean Air Branch of DOH’s Division of Environmental Health administers the state’s climate change programs to address GHG emissions and coordinates with other states to assist in the implementation of regional climate change initiatives.
