Partner Whit Swift will be speaking at a Special Institute on the Air Quality Issues Affecting Oil, Gas, and Mining Development and Operations hosted by the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, which is being held February 6 - 7, 2018, in Denver, Colorado.
Whit will discuss the “EPA’s Authority to Delay/Postpone Enforcement of Its Regulations” on February 6. Under the Obama Administration, EPA developed and executed aggressive enforcement campaigns and initiatives against the energy and extractive industries. Under the Trump Administration, EPA’s enforcement priorities have changed. And, in some cases, EPA has been delaying or postponing compliance (and hence enforcement) of existing regulations. This presentation will review EPA’s authority to delay/postpone compliance with, and enforcement of, existing air quality regulations and the impacts on the regulated community.
