"How Biden Beat The Clock On Big Environmental Regs"

"The administration’s rush to finalize rules on power plants, public lands and energy efficiency was aimed at shielding them from a Trump presidency."

"President Joe Biden’s regulators recently finalized a flood of major energy and environmental rules in hopes that they’ll stick even if Donald Trump returns to the White House.

Rule writers across the federal government hustled to complete sweeping new regulations in recent months — including everything from a high-stakes power plant rule on climate pollution to a policy governing conservation of public lands.

The dash to finish some of Biden’s biggest green rules aims to safeguard consequential policies if Republicans take the White House and make gains on Capitol Hill with this year’s elections."
