LWV MOSCOW - Natural Resources and Environmental Law in the Trump Era. Wednesday, Oct. 18, noon-1PM:

Jerrold "Jerry" Long will discuss "Natural Resources and Environmental Law in the Trump Era" at the League of Women Voters of Moscow forum in the Fiske Room of the 1912 Center, 412 E. Third St., Moscow.

Although the Constitution gives Congress the primary responsibility to craft the nation's natural resources management and environmental protection laws, the executive branch's implementation authority can shape how those laws play out. Without any changes to the underlying legal regimes, the Trump administration has already significantly changed the nation's approach to the natural environment in a number of areas, including how we address climate change, water pollution, public lands management and energy development. Long will share his perspective on the most significant of these changes, with the aim of understanding their consequences on the ground.

Long is a professor of law and the associate dean for faculty development at the University of Idaho College of Law. He earned a B.S. in biology from Utah State University, a J.D. from the University of Colorado-Boulder, and a Ph.D. in Environment and Resources from the Gaylord Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He studies and teaches in the areas of property, natural resources and environmental law.
