Puddles and Creek Beds: Obama’s Green Rules to Receive Cuts

As Reuters news agency reports today, US President Donald Trump’s administration will begin aggressive cuts to former US President Barack Obama’s environmental regulations as early as next week. Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt stated that Obama’s policy of addressing climate change concerns cost the US jobs and prevented economic growth. Pruitt has previously stated that Obama’s environmental measures, “made puddles and dry creek beds across this country subject to the jurisdiction of Washington, DC.” Pruitt was confirmed EPA chief last week amid an uproar from Democrats and environmentalists that felt Pruitt would allow a return of heavy industrial pollution.
