Improvements Proposed to Regulations Governing Petitions to the California State Water Resources Control Board
Authors: Amy E. Gaylord

Anyone who has challenged the action or inaction of a Regional Water Quality Control Board (“Regional Board”) knows that more often than not, by the time the State Water Resources Control Board (“State Board”) takes action on a petition – if it ever does – the petitioner has experienced long delay, legal uncertainty as to its rights and obligations, and significant expense. In some cases, by the time the State Board acts, the reason for the petition no longer exists. In an effort to minimize the delays commonly associated with State Board action on petitions, the State Board has proposed amendments to sections 2050, 2050.5, and 2051 of Title 23 of the California Code of Regulations. The proposed changes to the regulations would render petitions on which the State Board has not taken action within 90 days of receipt, dismissed by operation of law. These proposed revisions should improve the petition process, but may result in an increase in the number of court challenges to Regional Board decisions.

Pillsbury Senior Counsel Greg Laughlin Discusses the Future of Government Bailouts
Author: The Honorable Gregory H. Laughlin

Senior Counsel Greg Laughlin discusses the legislative steps being taken to prevent future large-scale government bailouts of distressed financial institutions. From implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act to the introduction of the PATH Act in the U.S. House of Representatives, efforts are underway to end bailouts by placing greater emphasis on private capital solutions that diminish the need for taxpayer dollars.
