Carlton Fields Miami Shareholder Neal McAliley was quoted in Daily News. The article, “Delegating CWA Permit Powers Could Aid Weakening Of Jurisdiction Rule,” discusses the weakening of the federal authority’s ability to regulate wetlands during the Trump Administration. 

McAliley shared:

I think there's people in the incoming Trump administration who see this as a very good strategy, because in their view once something is delegated to the states it never comes back to the federal government. Even if there's a new administration, the states are doing it already and it isn't going to come back. Delegation would reduce the federal role in jurisdiction, which I think is one of the administration's goals.
