What does the outcome of the 2016 elections mean for federal environmental policy? Although these issues played a minor role in the election, they pose numerous challenges for federal policymakers. What will be the environmental priorities of the new administration? What environmental legislation might be enacted by the 115th Congress? Three distinguished D.C.-based journalists addressed these and other issues.
