Trump and CA Set to Clash Over Climate Policies

Trump, CA Poised For Energy And Climate Policy War
– Law360

Law360 quoted Manatt’s Craig Moyer, co-chair of the firm’s energy practice, in an article about the inevitable clash of California and the Trump administration over climate legislation.

For example, the Trump administration and California are moving in opposite directions when it comes to regulating methane emissions from the oil and gas sector.

“While [Trump] appears to be moving to rescinding the methane rule, federally, the state has marched full speed ahead, and the oil operators here would argue that this puts them at a competitive disadvantage compared to the rest of the country, and they would argue that you can't apply it on federal lands,” said Moyer.
