Governor Rod R. Blagojevich Climate Change Advisory Group Key policy components to consider Affected sectors/sub-sectors/entities Related/complimenting policies and programs Time-tables and policy duration Stringency Implementation mechanisms Barriers to implementation Interstate cooperation
Governor Rod R. Blagojevich Climate Change Advisory Group Next steps: Assign policies to subgroups Policies go to subgroups for further consideration Primarily assigned by relevant sector Subgroups report back to CCAG on progress
