General Description: Energy and natural resources policies are often at odds with environmental regulatory policy. Increasingly, federal regulatory policy has been used to trump state policies relating to the generation of energy within states and the extraction of natural resources within states. Many states have pushed by filing suits against the EPA. This seminar will consider the relationship between federal and state regulatory policies, with an emphasis on recent cases or pending litigation. Students will be evaluated on the basis of constructive participation as well as short papers and class presentations.
