While the texts of environmental laws do not change without an act of Congress, executive branch agencies that enforce those laws have a great deal of discretion in what kinds of violations to prioritize for investigation and enforcement and how aggressive to be in applying them to new or ambiguous fact patterns. Because the consequences of contesting a government enforcement case can be so onerous – financially, operationally, reputationally and otherwise – how the agencies exercise this enforcement discretion can often determine, for all practical purposes, how laws actually direct business conduct.

Please join V&E Environmental & Natural Resources lawyers as they discuss key issues to watch in 2021 and beyond. Discussion topics will include:

  • Overview of environmental enforcement priorities, including the relationship between DOJ/EPA and how priorities are set at each
  • Update on EPA’s most recent enforcement results
  • Process and timeline for changing federal environmental enforcement priorities and predicted changes
