Venable partner Bill Sloan was quoted in a May 24, 2017, Bloomberg BNA article on proposed budget cuts to voluntary Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) programs aimed at improving energy efficiency and curbing greenhouse gas emissions. The proposed budget would cut $336 million from the agency’s climate work compared to 2017 and include an 85 percent cut to programs to track and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

"The clear message here seems to be the federal government is getting out of that business," said Sloan. "They don't want to send any kind of message with what the business community should be doing."
