Legal challenges not yet affecting California climate policies

In 2006, the California state legislature enacted A.B. 32, otherwise known as the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. Since its enactment, various provisions of the bill have been challenged in numerous legal actions. However, these legal challenges seem to have had little impact on the strength and steadfastness of the bill.

Drought, environmental law and issues of class

In recent weeks, we have been writing about California’s current dramatic drought conditions. The ways in which both state and federal legislators are attempting to grapple with this drought and the threat of future droughts are impacting the evolution of environmental law and compliance expectations related to current environmental regulations.

Environmental law and the Agricultural Act of 2014

The Agricultural Act of 2014 has now been signed into law. This omnibus bill will dramatically impact the agricultural industry over the next decade. It will also impact existing environmental law and compliance regulations that govern activity both on and well beyond farmland. Traditionally, farm bills in America have primarily been created in the interests of farmers, various organizations with agricultural interests and non-profit environmental entities. However, the 2014 farm bill’s provisions have been influenced by a myriad of additional interest groups.
