The Daily Record
President-elect Donald Trump vowed, in his campaign, to make the slashing of federal regulations a “cornerstone” of his administration. He suggested that as many as 70 percent of regulations “can go.” The top of Trump’s “to go” list is probably the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, a regulation – the country’s central effort to combat global warming – that would cut the power sector’s carbon emissions, in part by reducing the use of coal.
