Federal environmental policy

Between 2017 and 2021, the federal administration rolled back several major environmental regulations and weakened the protections provided by federal environmental laws.

We're working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to restore these protections, strengthen the nation’s environmental policies, and prepare for the future by addressing climate change, and supporting unbiased research and scientific analysis.

Together with our federal partners, we want to improve the health of Washingtonians and protect the state's land, air, and water from pollution.
