President Trump has called for significant deregulation in the area of environmental protection, using executive orders to address such items as the Clean Water Rule and the Clean Power Plan. Simultaneously, Congress has used the Congressional Review Act to set aside a number of actions designed to protect the environment under former President Obama. The San Diego Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society invites you to A Discussion on How Environmental Protections in Federal and California Law Fare under the Trump Administration featuring:

  • Tim Duane, Visiting Professor, University of San Diego School of Law
  • Jan Chatten-Brown, Founder and Co-Owner, Chatten-Brown & Carstens LLP
  • Suma Peesapati, Visiting Assistant Professor, University of California-Irvine School of Law

This program will discuss the scope and limits of executive authority on environmental deregulation, and state law and federal preemption as it relates to environmental regulations on the state and federal level. The panel will discuss if and how states like California can implement or maintain stricter environmental regulation while the federal government reduces regulations and standards in areas such as offshore oil drilling, air quality, water quality, and the protection of endangered species. The program will include discussions on the interplay between federal and California environmental laws, federal preemption, the Congressional Review Act, as well as a discussion of the key statutes and cases in this area.
