In the first installment of this series, we focused on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) continued regulation of the electric utility sector during the second term of the Obama administration. This article looks beyond the electric utility sector to other areas of anticipated EPA action during President Obama’s second term. Importantly, we believe that many of the administration’s actions during the second term will impact the broader “energy” sector, including petroleum refining and pipeline distribution of petroleum products. Beyond the energy sector, we believe that water quality issues and environmental justice will be at the forefront of the EPA’s agenda through the second term.
