    Mr. Trump’s ambitious agenda has been slowed, however, by unusually high losses in the courts.

And it is substantial.

  • Carbon Pricing Talk Heats Up Amid State-Federal Policy Rift

    “If designed properly, a carbon market or carbon price would always be looking for the cheapest carbon, whether it was energy efficiency or whatever the cheapest fuel source was, that’s what the carbon price would find,” Commissioner Cheryl LaFleur told Law360 at a recent energy and environmental policy conference hosted by New York University School of Law’s Institute for Policy Integrity.

  • Responding to Anti-Regulatory Tropes
