West Virginia v. EPA and Implications for Future Regulations

West Virginia Lawyers Chapter

Please join the West Virginia Lawyers Chapter for an in-person event!

Last term the Supreme Court rejected the Environmental Protection Agency's authority to impose certain emissions regulations in West Virginia v. EPA.  The immediate and popular press aftermath of the decision focused on the implications for environmental policy and the EPA's ability to take action to prevent climate change.  The equally important implications on government's regulatory power have been less prevalent in the policy discussion, but may have equal importance going forward.

Join us as three lawyers whose careers within and out of government have intersected with this case and who have thought about its implications for many years share their take on how West Virginia v. EPA will shape the future of environmental law, policy, and regulation.


  • Elbert Lin, Partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth and Former Solicitor General of West Virginia
  • J.B. McCuskey, West Virginia State Auditor & Securities Commissioner
  • Lindsay See, Solicitor General of West Virginia
