    WHAT YOU AND YOUR LEAGUE CAN DO to help build support for, and promote compliance with, the Clean Power Plan

    I. First, some homework --

    > What is the general view of the Clean Power Plan in your state?

    > What are the CPP goals for your state and what efforts are underway to develop your state's Implementation Plan? Even some states that are challenging the CPP in the courts are simultaneously working on implementation plans rather than wait for a final court ruling. (Check E&E's Power Plan Hub for the latest news about your state.)

    > What other state and/or local organizations supportive of the CPP are active in your area? What initiatives are being planned or are underway to promote implementation of the CPP? How might your League join in these efforts? Local chapters of national climate-activist groups are good potential partners, for example --

    > What is the status of Our Children's Trust litigation in your state? Young people have filed lawsuits or petitions against all 50 states for their failure to reduce GHG emissions. They have asked the courts to require the governments to take all necessary actions to reduce carbon emissions in line with the best climate science. Information about the status of these state actions is available here.

    II. Decide how your League can help advance implementation (or acceptance) of the Clean Power Plan

    > Build awareness and understanding of the Clean Power Plan. Make use of what you have learned about the general view of the CPP in your state to develop programs and information that will resonate with your particular audiences.

    > Support development of your state's implementation plan.
