President Trump Remaking Destructive Environmental Regulations


Trump Is Completely Remaking A Law Enviros Often Use To Stymie Oil Pipeline Construction | Watts Up With That?

President Donald Trump announced Thursday his plans to dramatically change an environmental law activist groups and their attorneys often use to wrap oil projects in years of bureaucratic red tape.

Trump plans to exempt privately funded projects from undergoing environmental reviews, a significant change that would make building mines and pipelines much easier, The Washington Post reported. Energy producers are cheering the move.

 The president noted in a press statement on NEPA's 50th anniversary on Jan. 1 that the law "can increase costs, derail important projects, and threaten jobs for American workers and labor union members."

Unions and energy producers are calling the president's move a long-needed change. Terry O'Sullivan, the general president of Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), told WaPo that the rule has impacted union jobs.

"For the hard-working members of LIUNA, who have had their livelihoods put on hold as infrastructure projects become mired in a review process that is needlessly long, complex, and lacks transparency, the administration's anticipated NEPA reforms are a welcome change," O'Sullivan told WaPo.
