From Wildlife To Monuments, Biden Looks To Change Environmental Policy

Jan 26, 2021


We are less than a week into the new Biden Administration, but already there are significant changes in the country’s direction. This may be most true when it comes to environmental policy. So what does this mean for western states, including Idaho?

Since being sworn in, President Joe Biden has hit pause on more than 100 policies under the previous administration. The policies cover everything from energy development, wildlife preservation and how public input is used to influence federal decisions on public land.  

Ken Rait with the Pew Charitable Trusts shared his perspective on the administration's new direction with Idaho Matters.
