At the federal level, the Trump Administration has finalized the Waters of the United State rule (as you heard last month), and has proposed narrowing the National Environmental Policy Act. In North Carolina, state agencies are working to identify risks from sea level rise, flooding, and other climate-driven hazards, and the recovery continues from Hurricane Florence and Matthew. The NC General Assembly convenes in late April, after a 2019 session that couldn’t reach agreement with the Governor on a biennial budget, and the ongoing 2020 election cycle promises to be intense.
Come join Grady McCallie, Policy Director at the NC Conservation Network, for a survey of major environmental issues that legislators and state regulators will be grappling with this year. Grady is Policy Director with the NC Conservation Network, where he and his colleagues work on water and air quality, resilience, transportation and energy emissions, and funding for state environmental agencies and programs.
