Changing Environmental Regulations and the Administrative Procedure Act | Sauce for the Goose is Sauce for the Gander

Over the past twenty years, changes in Presidential administrations have typically led to changes in Federal environmental regulations, often with a new administration seeking to alter the regulatory landscape set by the prior administration. The Administrative Procedure Act (APA), however, presents a hurdle that any rule change must surmount and can provide a check against ill-conceived changes. We have brought together an extraordinary panel of national experts on environmental law and the APA.  They will provide an overview of APA requirements, as well as highlight recent examples of when the federal courts have found the Trump EPA’s regulatory change efforts have and have not passed muster with the APA requirements.  The panel will also discuss how these decisions may provide a road map for environmental rule making by future administrations.
