The Trump Effect: Practical Impact On EPA Rules, Regulations, And Oversight That Will Affect Your Company

Webinar: ID# 1023900
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
One of the greatest challenges facing those charged with complying with environmental requirements is staying abreast of the new and emerging compliance requirements, and integrating them into their planning efforts. This is becoming more critical under President Trump’s administration.

The Trump Administration is proposing to undo, redo, and/or significantly streamline federal regulatory requirements. The administration is also talking about stimulating significant new investments in infrastructure, which will have direct and indirect environmental implications.

Join us when our panel, two seasoned environmental lawyers and a senior environmental health engineer, will address significant changes to the federal laws and regulations that will drive much of near and longer term environmental compliance efforts.

You’ll learn:
  • The practical impact of EPA Chair Scott Pruitt’s work so far—and what’s likely coming soon
  • What the EPA’s proposed deferment to the states means for your organization
  • The possible impacts of proposed—and significant—EPA staff cuts
  • How the new administration may change or eliminate existing federal rules and the impact this could have on companies like yours
  • How much deference courts must give to agency decisions
  • The likely fate of Obama’s climate change actions and the prospects for the coal, oil, and gas industries going forward
  • How to identify the tie between infrastructure spending and the environment
