In this article, Jenner & Block Partners E. Lynn Grayson and Allison A. Torrence explore how Environmental Protection Agency priorities could shift under the new administration. The article discusses what signals President Donald Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt have given about the agency’s future policies and what those could mean for new and existing regulations and enforcement strategies.
“While some campaign promise-related actions have been taken by Trump, environmental issues do not appear to be a critical priority for the administration at this time,” the authors write. “Nevertheless, the initial positions and actions taken by the recently confirmed EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt may provide insight into the new administration’s thinking around environmental matters and whether it will decide to escalate more aggressive decision-making and action.”
