The Trump administration on Thursday signed its long-promised regulation to remove millions of miles of streams and roughly half the country’s wetlands from federal protection, the largest rollback of the Clean Water Act since the modern law was passed in 1972.

The move delivers a major win for the agriculture, homebuilding, mining, and oil and gas industries, which have for decades sought to shrink the scope of the water law that requires them to obtain permits to discharge pollution into waterways or fill in wetlands, and imposes fines for oil spills into protected waterways.

Should the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency change its name to the EDA, the Environmental Destruction Agency?

Unsmoked, have you stopped beating your wife?  Please answer yes or no!

Dude - not sure if you are high or just drunk most of the time. You are so tightly wrapped around the myths you were fed, I don’t think you know if you are coming or going. If you are looking who is for pollution, just look for no further than democrat run cities full of thrash in the streets, people taking dump in the street (an act that has been decriminalized by the Dems in San Francisco, Washington, and Oregon), rat infested neighborhoods, etc.

By the way, it was Nixon that founded the EPA. Not the Dems. Or Dem President.

Please, Ice, dismantle is a trigger word that sends rightwing snowflakes into fits of denial. So use the proper term:Creatively rearrange in a downward spiral.

You respond to critics like Trump - using 4th grade playground-bully slander.  Your strategy, like his, is intended to deflect attention from the issue.

95 Environmental Rules Being Rolled Back Under Trump

President Trump has made eliminating federal regulations a priority. His administration, with help from Republicans in Congress, has often targeted environmental rules it sees as burdensome to the fossil fuel industry and other big businesses.

A New York Times analysis, based on research from Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School and other sources, counts more than 90 environmental rules and regulations rolled back under Mr. Trump.
