The American people have spoken. President Obama has been re-elected for a second term, yet he will face an even more divisive Congress than existed during his first four years in office. How that will impact his ability to carry out his environmental agenda remains in question. What is not in doubt is that his emboldened administration must make the case that environmental protection and economic prosperity are not mutually exclusive; environmental rules can actually drive economic growth and job creation. The Administration will be given ample chance to make that case with the plethora of pent-up water-related regulations waiting to be proposed or finalized in the next two years.
