Attorney Smith Authors Article in BNA's Daily Environment Report

Gordy Smith wrote an article for Bloomberg BNA's Daily Environment Report examining the trend in U.S. courts toward rejecting claims that federal regulatory agencies permitting wind power projects are required to obtain permits under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), or the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (BGEPA). The article also argues, however, that wind power projects that are already operational risk enforcement action if they do not adhere to the MBTA and BGEPA. Read "The Application of Migratory Bird Protection Statutes to Wind Power Projects" from Bloomberg BNA's Daily Environment Report.
