Nikki Adame-Winningham will speak on a panel entitled "Federalism and Environmental Regulations (or Who's in Charge?): A Discussion in the Wake of the Flint Water Issues." From public water to landfills, many of the critical public services that protect public health and the environment are under shared federal, state, and sometimes local government control, often without opportunity for citizen participation. Using the Flint, Michigan, drinking water issues as a springboard for discussion, panelists will discuss the federalism aspect of many of our major environmental laws and the patchwork of delegations through which responsibilities are shared. The panel of environmental counsel will discuss good governance and the state-federal relationship in the environmental arena – a topic useful to those who represent private, nonprofit, and public clients in any arena where state and federal governments share regulatory authorities.
