EPA Administrator Pruitt at CPAC

Based on the new Administrator’s remarks at CPAC today, as reported by the Guardian, there seems to be no change in plans of tearing  up much of the Agency’s work and potentially the Agency itself.  Of course, just as President Trump is now executing on some of the campaign promises he made, this will be no different and should be no surprise.  Friday’s Executive Order requiring a government-wide review of regulations is already moving efforts to undo regulations forward, it looks with some far more care and coordination than prior Trump Executive Orders.  Press rumors indicate that we’ll see Executive Orders next week on the Clean Power Plan and Waters of the US rule.  That has also been expected by many for quite some time.  But it will be interesting to see how the White House and Pruitt will go about undoing these rules, which will determine the course of action of the environmental advocacy community.
