EPA Seeks Public Comment on Regulatory Review

Posted April 15, 2017

"There's been a change of direction at the EPA, and I think that is what is prompting these kinds of stories", said Pruitt.

"All of us must re-double ourselves", she said.

Since his nomination in December, Pruitt has faced unprecedented opposition for someone seeking the role of the national environmental caretaker.

Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt, who wants to ensure the United States doesn't invest a single dollar in protecting humanity from climate change, nonetheless wants to use the agency's limited funds to protect himself from other humans.

In a letter obtained by the Washington Post, Michael Cox is critical of administrator Pruitt and his stance on climate change.

This executive gave up his United Airlines seat under threat of handcuffs
United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz, seen in March, apologized for "having to re-accommodate" passengers on an overbooked flight. But other passengers on the plane can be heard arguing with authorities over Dao's treatment as the horror unfolds.

Pruitt's visit came just two weeks after Trump signed an executive order meant to overturn the Clean Power Plan, which former President Barack Obama and other Democrats had hoped would sharply cut Carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.

Pruitt said what he has witnessed across the country is that in states in where oil, natural gas and coal are produced, leaders in those states are committed to being both "pro-environment, and pro-growth". "We're going to partner together with you".

"[It's] no lie that the [coal] industry in the last eight years, we've all felt a lot of pain", said Jimmy Brock, CEO of CNX Coal Resources, which operates the Harvey Mine.

On behalf of ACE's 500 members, executive vice president Brian Jennings provided the EPA with the following recommendations to tackle regulatory burdens, which unnecessarily limit the production and use of ethanol and stall job creation and economic growth in rural America. Yet tributaries are among the types of waterways for which the Clean Water Rule restored federal protections (in addition to more than half of our nation's streams.) So repealing the rule could leave companies like Consol with a license to pollute. They also argued that the Obama administration's rule was based on years of peer-reviewed studies, input from health experts and a mountain of public comments.

"They didn't listen to their concerns", she said of the previous administration.

Michigan State will also have McDonald's All-American Jaren Jackson , a 6-10 power forward, coming in next season. Bridges joins Texas A&M's Robert Williams as probable lottery picks who have chose to come back to school.

"Lets look at what the past (Obama) administration achieved", Pruitt said.

The Trump administration is taking a sledgehammer to the EPA budget with the intent of crippling the agency's protection of our water and air.

"If Administrator Pruitt cares about the coalfields, he would help rebuild our local economy for the long term, as programs in the Clean Power Plan would have done", Coalfield Justice Executive Director Veronica Coptis said.

Implementing the 2015 ozone standards also includes various deadlines for the EPA and states to take action to reduce pollution levels, all of which are still in place despite the ongoing administration review.
