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.
