Energy & Environmental Law Update - Week of April 16, 2013

The nominees for the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy leadership positions are going to the Hill this week for their confirmation hearings. Today Ernest Moniz, President Obama’s pick for energy secretary, will appear before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. It is expected that the Committee will probe Moniz’s views on shale oil and gas. Gina McCarthy, the Environmental Protection Agency administrator nominee, will sit before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Thursday, and will likely face tough questioning from Republicans on the Committee.

For more on the latest energy and clean technology regulatory and legislative developments, including the President’s recent favorable remarks on clean energy investment, please see ML Strategies’ most recent Energy and Environmental Update.
