Report: Trump Admin Plans To Scrap The Clean Power Plan

Media folks seem shocked by this development, even though Trump promised to do this multiple times

(UK Independent) The Trump administration reportedly plans to repeal the Clean Power Plan, a “game changer” of a piece of Obama era climate change legislation.

Reuters said it had seen a document “distributed to members of the agency’s Regulatory Steering Committee” about “issuing a proposal to repeal the rule” and opening up a comment period for replacement legislation.

The CPP, called a “game changer” by the Union of Concerned Scientists in 2015 after it was passed into law, regulates the carbon emissions of power plants.

By game changer, they mean it could cost up to 300,000 jobs annually, reduce GDP by over $2 trillion, and cost citizens $7,000 per. All while make no change on the environment and the climate.

Anyhow, remember that 27 states sued over the plan

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals had suspended the regulation at the request of the Trump administration in April 2017 and set a 6 October deadline to get a report for the EPA about it will proceed, which could explain the timing of the intention to repeal being made public now.

In fact, the plan was temporarily blocked under the Obama administration, pending litigation. The lawsuit was put on hold till Team Trump came up with a response as to what they intend to do. Now we await what they will do.
