Environmental regulations spurred evolution in fields of law

James Oberstar and the Clean Water Restoration Act

On behalf of WAC, Virginia Albrecht of Hunton & Williams testified before the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in 2008 to fight an effort led by then-Rep. James Oberstar called the Clean Water Restoration Act (CWRA). With this act, Rep. Oberstar said he and his colleagues were attempting to clear up jurisdictional issues created by recent court decisions and return protections that had been eliminated as a result.
