Neal McAliley was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article titled “Supreme Court Wetlands Ruling Imperils Waters on Public Lands.” The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Sackett v. EPA, which some argue leaves wetlands and waterways in national parks, monuments, forests and other federal public lands vulnerable to pollution and development. Others believe the ruling will not affect federal lands because the federal government already controls permitting there.

“Activities on federal lands require approval by a federal agency,” said McAliley. “Federal actions are subject to NEPA, the Endangered Species Act, and other laws that require the agencies to consider the environmental effects of their actions.”
