Regulatory Tracker

Our 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.

See more of our work analyzing the Biden administration’s environmental and climate actions on our Tracking the Biden-Harris Climate & Environmental Agenda page (including links to our Biden Environmental Action Tracker spreadsheet and our Federal Environmental Justice Tracker).
