Post-Election 2020 Environmental Issues
Understand the key areas of environmental policy that will be the focus of the Biden Administration.
The election of Joseph Biden has the potential to result in an incredible change in the direction of environmental and energy policy. In the past four years, the Trump Administration was widely successful in President Trump’s agenda of reducing the burden of environmental regulations and in rescinding and amending many core environmental policies and programs. There is little question that President Trump left his mark on environmental and energy policy. The Biden Administration will undoubtedly want to reverse many of these decisions. However, there are practical and legal impediments to immediate change. What campaign promises did Biden make? What will his priorities be in the first 100 days? What are his chances for success?
