The administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Scott Pruitt has determined after a month’s long investigation ordered by President Trump that the regulations imposed on the coal industry by Obama need to go. The so called Clean Power Plan was issued by Obama without the approval of Congress which made it unconstitutional on its face.
That is why the U.S. Supreme Court put a hold on enforcement of the plan over a year ago. The whole purpose of the exercise by Obama was to fulfill his campaign promise of putting the coal industry out of business and costing thousands of American jobs, in the name of climate change. All of that is now being reversed.
