Miriam E. Villani Sees Drastic Changes to Environmental Policy under a Trump Administration

Firm Partner Miriam E. Villani wrote an op-ed piece for Long Island Business News on how Donald J. Trump will reverse environmental policy that was implemented by his predecessor when he becomes President of the United States.

Ms. Villani says Mr. Trump's choices for the Energy Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Interior Department will support his plans to boost the coal industry, roll back federal environmental regulations, pull the U.S. out of the Paris accord, and do away with President Obama’s Climate Action Plan and Clean Power Plan.

"Many questions remain about what Trump's environmental policy will look like, but one thing is fairly certain: we are likely to see a rollback of efforts to combat climate change, including the repealing of regulations, a push for increased fossil fuel development, and a limiting of the work of energy regulators," Ms. Villani wrote. "In the face of this expectation, we will see the states take on a more significant role in environmental protection and energy regulation."
