Online CLE Energy Sector

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Energy Sector Webinar. Since his first year in office, President Trump has attempted to reverse a number of energy-related policies through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Many of these Obama-era policies, which include the Clean Power Plan (CPP), corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards, and the “methane rule”, are related to climate change. The current deregulation trend in the energy sector is expected to continue under new EPA Acting Head, Andrew Wheeler.
