Yesterday, EPA’s Office of Water held a listening session on what Scott Pruitt and Donald Trump call, “the regulatory burden.” We call it public protections for our air, water, and health. I had the opportunity to testify. My comments are below. If you want to weigh in, you can take action here, and be sure to personalize the message you send.
Republicans in Congress and the Trump Administration are saying “regulatory reform” a lot. They are using this innocuous label to hide that their agenda poses a direct threat to clean water and more.
Earlier this month, Donald Trump signed a repeal of the Stream Protection Rule, under the Congressional Review Act, and at the signing, he called the Rule “another terrible job killing rule."
