Get Ready For War On The Environment
[su_right_ad]It is pretty clear that the key component of the Republican agenda is rolling back many of the good things that have happened in the Obama Administration. Key among these are environmental protections:
Republican lawmakers are planning an all-out assault on Obama’s environmental agenda, including rules on mercury and other air toxics from power plants, limits on ground-level ozone that causes smog, mountaintop mining restrictions and the EPA’s attempt to redefine its jurisdiction over streams and ponds.
The Interior Department is also in the crosshairs, with rules due to come soon on hydraulic fracturing on public land and protecting streams from mining waste.[su_csky_ad]
