EPA destruction continues

Trump's administration is considering plans to cut staff at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency by one-fifth , according to a document reviewed by Washington Post reporters. The EPA cuts would eliminate key programs.

- Removed a rule requiring oil companies to disclose payments to foreign governments (2/1)
- Revoked a rule banning lead bullets (3/1)

- Dropped a rule that requires oil companies to document the amount of methane, an extremely potent greenhouse gas, they emit (3/2)
This absolute disrespect for our environment by this administration is truly saddening.
