LARGE LEFT LATERAL LEAPS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PROFESSIONALS –
IF I RAN THE WORLD.
Thursday, December 7, 2017 - 2:00 - 5:30
Chaired by: David Steed and Ken Houser, SWCA
Session Description: Representatives from agencies, industry, legal firms, and the political world, discussing how they would change the regulatory and permitting landscape. Open forum discussion focusing on such potential topics as:
- What changes would we like to see from the Trump administration?
- Long-term liabilities, how can we limit our exposure—or at least quantify them—while still being a responsible miner?
- What is the ONE thing that could be done right now to make NEPA work for everybody—agencies, mining companies, environmental groups?
- What is the ONE thing that Congress could change to make NEPA work for everybody in the long-term?
- Endangered Species Act—does it go too far? How can it work better?
