Environmental regulation entered a new world with the election of President Barack Obama.  New environmental laws have been enacted, new environmental regulations have been promulgated, and courts have issued precedent-setting environmental decisions.  Even with all of these recent changes, the regulatory agenda of the Obama Administration and Congress remains robust.  Significant new regulations or legislation and other initiatives are anticipated in the fields of climate change, chemicals regulation, disaster response, air and water regulation, vapor intrusion and other areas important to the business community.
