In Law360 Article, Akin Gump Lawyers Discuss Key Environmental and Energy Considerations for the 2020 Elections

Law360 has published the article 'Environmental Policy And The Election: Part 1,' the first in a three-part series by Akin Gump partners James Tucker and Stacey Mitchell and associate Bryan Williamson outlining the key environmental and energy policies of President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. The series also looks at how the outcome of the congressional elections could affect policy in these areas.

The first article identifies the Trump administration's 'significant late-term rules that a unified Democratic Congress may seek to invalidate to minimize Trump's legacy.' The authors write that this could be done through the Congressional Review Act, which they describe as 'the equivalent of a legislative veto.' They then outline the specific 'environmental- and energy-related rules and proposed rules (if finalized) that may be subject to review and possible rejection by the next Congress.'
