Our work has made a tangible impact, helping shape important policies at the federal, state, and local levels. Some of our key accomplishments are described below.
Successfully Challenging (and Tracking) Deregulation
The Institute for Policy Integrity has filed influential amicus briefs in several critical environmental lawsuits related to Trump administration deregulatory efforts.
Helping California Improve Energy Decisionmaking
California has long been a trendsetter in clean energy policy, and our input helped inform the state’s approach for evaluating distributed energy resources (DERs), such as rooftop solar installations.
Improving the Government’s Valuation of Natural Resources
Policy Integrity’s multi-year effort to improve federal natural resource leasing programs has made a significant impact.
Helping Save Lives in NYC
Our research helped spur New York City to adopt a major air pollution rule that has saved hundreds of lives.
Reforming the Federal Petition Process
Individuals can petition federal agencies to issue, amend, or repeal regulations, but agencies lack a uniform process for handling these petitions. Our efforts have helped improve this system.
