Reversing Environmental Rollbacks

CLEE’s rollbacks project is now featured in an interactive tracker on Grist. All future updates throughout 2022 will be displayed on Grist’s page.

CLEE assembled a team of legal experts to develop a series of strategy memos that detail how to reverse some of the most problematic environmental policy rollbacks of the last administration, with a focus on those that have not received the same level of attention as more high-profile actions (e.g., changes to automobile fuel economy standards) but still pose significant threats to the environment and agency programs/processes. These memos detail each rollback’s legal background, environmental and regulatory impact, and current litigation status; offer a list of proposed actions for the new administration to reverse it; and, where appropriate, propose affirmative actions the agencies can take to build on existing programs. You can access the memos via the links below.
