I came across an article at The Hill that the EPA planned to rewrite a regulation from President Barack Obama’s administration that limited toxic waste from power plants.

President Trump has scored significant successes undoing the toxic eco-activist legacy of his predecessor, including the executive orders moving the signing of Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines forward.
