Recycling Today interviewed Warner Norcross + Judd LLP partner Kurt Kissling for its article titled “EJ guidance lacks clarity.” The article spotlights environmental justice policies that are introduced and enforced at state and local levels, but usually without clear rules or procedures to govern implementation.
Kissling is interviewed throughout the article and says he suspects some state lawmakers might be hesitant to propose EJ-related regulations: “I think a lot of states look at this [and think] this could be crippling economically to come out with another set of requirements that make my state harder to do business [in], harder to get approvals. There’s even been a reticence at the federal level to come out with rulemaking that could trickle down to states, so why would states rush to react?”
Kissling is an environmental attorney with decades of experience in all matters related to the Clean Air Act as well as its state and local counterparts, including permitting, compliance, enforcement and advocacy. Regional and national clients across a variety of industries rely on Kurt’s expertise to address complex regulatory and enforcement matters that impact their operations.
