U.S. EPA Targets Another Trump-Era Policy

U.S. EPA has proposed a rule to reverse a Trump-era decision on water permitting projects by revising Section 401 of the Clean Water Act. Former President Trump had prioritized Section 401 reform to fast-track major energy projects. The National Association of Manufacturers says the U.S. EPA’s newly proposed rule does not go far enough “to stop activists from abusing what were intended to be important water protections.” 6/7/2022
