Key Legal Issues Facing the Administration in 2014: Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources

February 5, 2014

An ELI Research Seminar

A sizable crowd of professionals joined us for a discussion of what effects the next Obama Administration will have on environmental law, policy, and practice in 2014.  What are the implications of the President’s climate mandates? What priorities will the new Administration place on public land development and conservation? How will US energy policy change, if at all?

Four expert practitioners had an “inside-baseball” discussion about upcoming policies and regulatory agendas at the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Justice, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the Department of Interior, among other regulatory agencies.

Panelists:
John Cruden, President, Environmental Law Institute, and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, Department of Justice (moderator)
Scott Fulton, Principal, Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. and most immediate past General Counsel, Environmental Protection Agency
Gary S. Guzy, Senior Of Counsel, Covington & Burling LLP, former Deputy Director & General Counsel, White House on Environmental Quality
Sheila Slocum Hollis, Partner, Duane Morris, and former Director, Office of Enforcement, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
William H. Meadows, Counselor, and former President, The Wilderness Society
