Mr. Tapp will discuss the White House Climate Change Initiative, how it will affect our region and the regional offices’ plans to implement the program. EPA is placing great emphasis on the program and this is a great opportunity to listen and question one of the key managers of the program.

Ms. Bhesania works in the Air Planning branch at EPA Region 7 where for the last 8 years she has focused on ensuring that states are meeting federal air quality regulations. In addition, she has coordinated a number of programs and projects related to sustainability, energy efficiency, and most recently is leading the Region’s climate action team in establishing and implementing adaptation and mitigation projects for Region 7.
