"Supreme Court Watchlist: Agency Power, Air Rules, Water Rights"

"The Supreme Court is halfway through another term that will have transformative consequences for environmental law.

After spending the last two years striking down key climate and water protections, the conservative-dominated court now appears to be on the verge of erasing a tool for federal agencies to defend their environmental regulations against legal attack.

Such a decision would bring the court another step closer toward conservative lawyers’ professed goal of weakening executive agencies and shifting power to Congress and the states."
