Changes to Environmental Regulations Coming

Today a federal appeals court vacated the Trump administration’s rules that eased restrictions on greenhouse-gas emissions from power plants.

Megan Houdeshel is a partner at the international law firm Dorsey & Whitney who advises clients on environmental and regulatory matters. She helps mining and industrial clients with environmental permitting, compliance, and project development. She actively represents mining, petroleum, chemical, energy, and public utility interests throughout the western United States and Canada.

“I think the decision is just the first example of many we are going to see in terms of industry uncertainty when it comes to Trump era regulations.  Whether it be courts overturning regulations, or the incoming Biden administration reversing course on executive orders and policy, companies should be ready for changes in environmental regulations applicable to their business and operation,” Houdeshel says.
