Jackson Walker partner Mike Nasi recently spoke on changes to various energy regulations under the Trump administration at the State Bar of Texas Public Utility Law Section Annual Meeting and Seminar. His presentation, titled “Energy Under Trump: Impacts of the 2017 Election,” covered several energy topics affecting public utilities, including the Regional Haze Rule, greenhouse gas rules, the ozone NAAQS rule, and MATS and CCR rules.
The bulk of his presentation compared these regulations before and after the election of President Donald Trump whose administration has ushered in more energy-friendly policies. While the majority of his presentation focused on energy in Texas, he also covered regulations in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.
