In the latest podcast for Crowell & Moring’s “Trump: The First Year” series, Dan Wolff and Tom Lorenzen, both litigation partners in the firm’s Environment & Natural Resources Group and Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice, discuss the implications of a July 3 D.C. Circuit ruling invalidating EPA's 90-day administrative stay of the current oil and gas methane rule.
Discussed in this 21-minute podcast:
- An overview of the Clean Air Council v. Pruitt decision.
- The possible impacts of this decision on the administration’s stated goal of "deconstructing the administrative state."
- Other possible mechanisms for halting rules in the short term without going through notice-and-comment rulemaking.
- The practical implications of this ruling, and key takeaways for businesses.
