Almost any change in presidential administrations spells transformation in the regulatory atmosphere at every single level of government. However, the new administration has been more aggressive than most in suggesting policy shifts, particularly regarding the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. At the same time, the language coming from the White House has also acted as an incentive for many states to consider changes to their own regulations regarding environmental, sustainability and energy management issues. What will the next four years look like to the business community when it comes to regulatory mandates?
In this session, you will learn:

  • How and under what circumstances companies must change their business plans in what may or may not be a more relaxed regulatory environment.
  • Which opportunities may be available to companies with a new administration in the White House.
  • What will companies do when potential new regulatory mandates come into conflict with investor demands.
