1. Study the effects that existing and proposed federal environmental regulations will have on the Texas economy.
2. Analyze how more stringent environmental standards will affect economic development, energy reliability, wholesale and retail power prices, and stranded asset implications and identify transportation or manufacturing limitations that might result.
3. Consider the effects these standards will have on Texas jobs and household incomes and include any opportunities for federal financial assistance or allowances.
4. Consider financial implications of these standards on the Texas Emission Reduction Plan and how the Plan can help mitigate the negative effects of these additional regulations without signification depletion.
5. Consider, in reviewing the Clean Power Plan, costs and benefits of complying and creating a state plan or the possibility of non-compliance and the resulting federal plan.
6. Examine possible legal recourse as part of the state's response.
