PODCAST: Court Limits EPA’s Ability to Delay Clean Air Act Regulation Without Rulemaking — C&M's Trump: The First Year Series

Jul.06.2017

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.
