On February 24, 2017, President Trump issued Executive Order 13777 on Enforcing the Regulatory Agenda. This Executive Order is an attack on regulations that help protect our environment and keep our children and grandchildren healthy and safe.
The executive order instructs the EPA and other federal agencies to “reform” (read: dismantle) regulations that protect our environment and health. But it’s not as simple as that, and the EPA has a public process it must implement before any regulatory changes. And now, the EPA has begun a public comment period to get feedback on the order.

ACT NOW: CONTACT YOUR SENATORS: Congress is trying to block the Bureau of Land Management’s new, common sense standards to prevent wasteful leaks, venting, and flaring of natural gas. The congressional vote would not only block current standards, but prevent new ones from ever being being issued. Flaring natural gas wastes money, resources, and lets millions of tons of toxic pollution into the air, hurting our health and climate. CLICK HERE to sign a Petition or Call your Senators.
