In our 100 Day Spotlight: President Trump says he’ll cut regulation by 75 percent, maybe more. What would deregulation mean for the economy, for workers, for the environment? Plus: The President approves the controversial Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines.
The pace is quickening, the reach extending, in the new Trump administration’s moves to put its stamp on national policy. Inside the government, gag orders – in effect – on environment and science staffers speaking to the public. Presidential orders to revive the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines. And a broad promise by President Trump to sweep away federal regulation. This hour in our On Point 100-day Spotlight, pipelines, blackouts, and the Trump way of regulatory reform. — Tom Ashbrook
