Heslin Quoted in Law360 Department of Energy Article

March 2013

Charlotte Litigation Member Brian Heslin was quoted in Law360’s March 4 article “Obama's DOE Pick May Raise Hackles Among Fossil Fuel Foes.”  The article addresses President Barack Obama’s nomination of physicist Ernest Moniz as head of the U.S. Department of Energy, stating that in doing so, he has tapped a politically savvy scientist who shares his "all-of-the-above" energy development strategy.  Some question Moniz’s sphere of influence over U.S. natural gas policy.

"'That person [energy secretary] articulates the overall strategy and policy of the administration, but as far as the day-to-day enforcement and regulation is concerned, isn't involved,’" Heslin told Law360
