Regulatory Tracker

The Regulatory Tracker explains the Biden administration’s steps to advance clean energy deployment and environmental protection, and provides an up-to-date and concise summary of both regulatory and litigation actions. The table below links you to pages that describe the significance and history of each rule, including the Trump-era rollback efforts. We work to update each page on the actions of the Biden administration and any related litigation. You can find our Federal Environmental Justice Tracker here.

We have paused or stopped updating many of the rules we were tracking under the Trump administration; you can find them here.

Thank you to our HLS tracker research assistants!
