The Uncertain Suburbs: Trump, Congress, and Swing Voters -- Environmental Policy and the Suburbs

In the past year, shifts in federal environmental policy and regulation have been significant, yet often overlooked. While the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement received widespread media coverage -- and criticism from the international community -- others changes in areas such as clean water and environmental justice have garnered far less attention. What challenges or unexpected opportunities might these changes present for sustainability in the suburbs? Can local, regional, and state action provide leadership in the absence of federal support?


This is the second of three panel discussions on April 17 entitled The Uncertain Suburbs: Trump, Congress, and Swing Voters and presented by Peter S. Kalkow Center for the Study of the American Presidency and the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University®.
