Latest Developments in Federal Environmental Law

Program Number: 3067

Program Date: 03/27/2020


Marc Bruner, an experienced environmental and land use lawyer, will discuss the latest developments under the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, the National Environmental Policy Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. New regulations have recently been adopted or proposed in all of these areas, and the new rules could significantly affect the permitting and compliance requirements for a broad range of development plans, programs and projects that require a federal permit or authorization. The new rules generally embrace a narrower view of federal jurisdiction and authority than the prior regulations, but there are many nuances and complexities that warrant a close examination. This presentation will discuss the new rules and the changes they represent, the implications for future interpretations and applications of these federal laws, and next steps, including litigation challenging the new rules. This is a rapidly changing area of the law, and this presentation will help you keep on top of the most important recent developments.
