Governing Law and Regulations
Nebraska has no statutes, regulations, or Executive Orders applicable to greenhouse gas (GHG) management or any other aspect of climate change.
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.
Nebraska has not implemented any regulatory programs dealing with GHG emissions or climate change, other than participating in regional programs.
Nebraska is currently involved in the Energy Security and Climate Stewardship Platform to address GHG emissions: For detailed information on regional programs, click here.
