The Trump Administration’s attempts to roll back decades of environmental, workplace and safety protections will be met with some RESISTANCE. The law of the land requires that any executive agency seeking to change any existing regulation has to invite and review public comments. At least in this setting, citizen voices have something approaching the same weight as that of paid lobbyists. At IEB we’re tracking as many of these proposed rollbacks as possible so that our members can make their voices heard. Please read the background information in the links below and comment (and comment often) to protect the country!
