State Wetlands Regulation

Keith Gardner just published a short, interesting article on California wetlands regulation in the ABA's Trends online newsletter, a link to which I provide below. This subject is important because California is often a bellwether state, and the feds - - at least for the time being - - have significantly cut back on wetlands regulation under the new WOTUS rule. To the extent that the states will step in to fill the void, keeping track of state regulatory efforts in an area historically occupied by the EPA and the Corps will be important.
