RES_PUB_Food Law at the Outset of the Trump Administration

Food policy remains one of the main levers by which we can work to address some of the most intractable problems of our time because of food's effect on health, the environment, and the economy. For this reason, it is important to consider the implications of the Trump administration's policies in this arena. Moreover, a look at some of the food law and policy initiatives that may be delayed or suspended under the new administration provides a window into the new administration's anti-regulatory stance more generally and we can see how state and local governments will act to fill regulatory and policy gaps.
