EPA Announces Changes to Regulatory Action

New rule would increase transparency to policy decision making.

Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that new rules had been put in place by the Trump Administration to streamline the process of regulating the environmental impact of infrastructure development. The new rules would strive to increase transparency to the agency’s process of conducting each cost-benefit analysis of various projects, and standardize the results across programs. 

The executive order from the White House temporarily sidesteps required EPA reviews due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The result of these new rules would be to give the legislative branch more authority by limiting the amount of flexibility the EPA has to determine if projects are able to move forward. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would use the EPA to protect and preserve the natural resources of the country. 
  • For the Trump Administration to be good stewards of the environment. 
  • That Congress would pass legislation that would preserve God’s creation for generations to come.
