Environmental Law Update

Kyle R. Johnson

From this author’s perspective, there is currently no bigger story in environmental law than the election of President Joe Biden to the highest office in the land. As most readers know, President Trump spent the bulk of his presidency undoing, or attempting to undo, Obama-era environmental policies. The biggest question is whether President Biden will be able to do much beyond returning to the Obama administration’s status quo. This column provides a brief overview of actions that President Biden will likely take in the first few months after taking office to counteract President Trump’s environmental legacy. As this column is being published after Inauguration Day, there is a strong possibility that many of the action items mentioned in this column will have already been completed.
