On Fires, Floods, and Federalism: Adapting Welfare Programs for the Climate Crisis
Andrew Hammond, Indiana University Maurer School of Law

 Professor Hammond will present his paper entitled, On Fires, Floods, and Federalism: Adapting Welfare Programs for the Climate Crisis. Professor Hammond’s research contextualizes the climate crisis in our scholarly understanding of the American welfare state. Professor Hammond will explain how, amid the recent spate of fires and floods, federal law has fared. His work attends to the role of Congress, weakened as it is by increased polarization and diminished capacity, and how the resulting delays and distortions in emergency relief have hampered the government response.
