2016 Annual Agricultural Law Symposium

Event Detail
Oct. 6-8, 2016
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Paul Beard was a speaker at this symposium on a panel titled “The Clean Water Act and the Federal Take-Over of Private Property: Current Issues and Future Trends.”

The presentation focused on three different strategies being used by federal agencies to expand their powers under the Clean Water Act in ways that are especially impactful to the ag community: (1) by expanding their regulatory power (through the WOTUS Rule); (2) by fighting to close the courthouse doors on judicial review of Jurisdictional Determinations (of wetlands); and (3) by usurping the traditional authority of municipalities over land-use decision making. Each of these strategies were discussed in the context of pending (or recently ended) litigation.
