"Retiring Justice Kennedy Shaped Clean Water Act’s Boundaries"
Sarah Peterman Bell commented on Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's role in forming the nation’s environmental policies, including shaping the jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act.
In the article Ms. Bell said, “Extending Clean Water Act applicability to wetlands where there is a ‘significant nexus’ to jurisdictional waters has had a significant and lasting effect on environmental law. As we now see in the WOTUS rulemaking and in the recent indirect discharge opinions out of the 4th and 9th Circuits.”
