Join the American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources at the University of Mississippi School of Law on March 8, 2018 for the one-day non-CLE discussion: Shifting Policies for a Shifting Environment: Environmental Policy Symposium. In the midst of significant environmental changes triggered by shifts in climate, population, and natural resources, changes in party control of the White House and Senate have sparked a drastic and unpredictable shift in course for environmental law and policy. This Policy Symposium explores how these two transformative forces, shifts in environmental factors and political changes, are converging and what new paths may lie ahead.
Save the date for this timely discussion in a unique and engaging format. Topics include:
- Overview of the shifting EPA positions under the Clean Water Act, potential implications for jurisdictional wetlands determinations, and the status of litigation challenges to the WOTUS rule;
- The Clean Air Act (CAA) in a shifting regulatory environment;
- Analysis of interstate disputes relating to water quantity and flood control and how they relate to endangered species issues;
- And key regulatory policy changes that will impact the state/federal relationship in environmental regulatory matters.
