Addressing the Current and Future Environmental Regulatory Landscape in Colorado

Join Greenberg Traurig LLP shareholder Paul M. Seby for his discussion of the current and evolving environmental regulatory landscape in Colorado, ranging from the long-running controversy over the “Waters of the U.S.”, EPA and Colorado’s air emission rules directly affecting Colorado’s energy sector, and the ongoing saga involving BLM’s Hydraulic Fracturing and Venting & Flaring Rules.  Paul will discuss these issues in the context of the Trump Administration’s efforts to rescind or revise many Obama-era rules, the tension between these Federal initiatives and the policy and regulatory policies of Colorado’s Governor, Legislature, regulators and other stakeholders, and how the courts are reacting to these complex issues.
