The Status of Environmental Enforcement under the Evers/Kaul Administrations – Update on Hot Topics

A lot can change in a year. 

In fall 2018, Wisconsin voters elected Democratic Gov. Tony Evers to replace two-term incumbent Gov. Scott Walker. The state’s top law enforcement official, Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel, lost his reelection bid in favor of Democrat Josh Kaul. Evers’ and Kaul’s elections have propelled a wave of change in Madison. There are new faces in key roles across state government—and a new set of environmental policies and priorities from state officials. 

Contemporaneously, the state legislature passed a controversial suite of bills (popularly referred to as the “lame duck” legislation) which alter the regulatory and enforcement authority of the Governor, Attorney General, and executive agencies. 

What does all this change mean for regulated businesses? How will it affect state environmental enforcement activity? What can you expect going forward? Join David Crass, Rob Marchant, and Taylor Fritsch from Michael Best and Michael Best Strategies for an invite-only webinar who will share updates on the latest developments impacting Wisconsin’s regulated community, including:

  • Environmental Enforcement Activity in Wisconsin: What’s happening at DNR and DOJ
  • Legislative Oversight of State Settlement Agreements: Developments and opportunities 
  • Guidance on Guidance: What you should know about Act 369’s impact on agency guidance documents 

We will apply for CLE credit in WI, CO, IL, NC, TX, UT, and VA (if applicable).
