Webinar Replay: 2018 Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite: Drill, Baby, Drill

This program offers 1.5 participatory MCLE credit. You must register in advance to participate.

In January 2018, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and the Trump Administration announced a plan to allow offshore drilling along the entirety of the Pacific coast, along with the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, and in the waters off Alaska. Shortly thereafter, the Administration took steps to exempt the Florida coast from the leasing planā€”but federal waters along the entire West Coast will remain open to oil and gas development through the proposed five-year leasing program. This panel will explore the implications for California: Whatā€™s allowed offshore now, and what would be allowed under this new plan? How can this move by the federal government be reconciled, if at all, with Californiaā€™s greenhouse gas reduction goals? Will there be a significant spike in offshore oil and gas activities? How could the Coastal Zone Management Act, OCSLA, and NEPA be used to challenge the Administrationā€™s plan?

Speakers: Alison Dettmer, Jordan Diamond, Lisa Halko, Cari Sakashita
