Understanding the Tesla environmental law scandal

You may have read in the news recently that California governor Jerry Brown is currently attempting to negotiate with Tesla so that the corporation will consider constructing its lithium-ion cell gigafactory in the Golden State. This negotiation is incredibly controversial for one simple reason. Yes, it is generally in California’s best interests to serve as a pro-business state so that companies will want to move here and stay here. However, the Tesla negotiation scandal remains controversial because in order to get Tesla to build the gigafactory in California, the governor may have to waive a critical environmental law that has been in place for decades.

How would the border crisis bill affect environmental law?

Late last month, House Republicans introduced an emergency bill related to security on the U.S. border with Mexico. This controversial bill would cost taxpayers $659 million. These funds would be allocated in ways that would permit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency to construct surveillance posts, roads and other structures designed to aid in security-related operations.
