Maura E. Blau, Counsel in the firm’s Environmental Department, will be on the faculty for the live webcast “What’s in Store for the Energy Sector Under the Trump Administration,” to be presented by The Knowledge Group on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 from 3:00 – 5:00pm (ET).
During his campaign, President Donald J. Trump vowed to demolish a great number of Obama-era policies, including regulations related to global warming and climate change, as well as regulation which control air and water pollution. The new administration has locked its focus on fossil fuels and energy policies to lower costs, and plans to direct significant resources to strengthen the coal, oil, and natural gas industries.
Ms. Blau and her fellow panelists will explore a number of important topics during this webinar, including:
- Environmental Laws: Past, Present and Future
- Risks, Pitfalls, and Legal Challenges
- Donald Trump's "America First Energy Plan"
- Proposed Modifications Under the Trump Administration
- Scope and Limitations
- Recent Trends and Developments
