President Trump Executive Order Update

Article by Josie Gaskey, PACA's Director of Environmental, Safety & Health

On March 28, President Trump issued an Executive Order requiring all federal agencies to “immediately review existing regulations that potentially burden the development or use of domestically produced energy resources and appropriately suspend, revise, or rescind those that unduly burden the development of domestic energy resources beyond the degree necessary to protect the public interest or otherwise comply with the law.”

          In keeping with his campaign promises to reduce regulation, the Order requires:

  • a general review of energy-related agency regulations and requirements,
  • rescinding Obama orders and other guidance related to climate change, directing EPA to review the Clean Power Plan and its related rules and agency actions (EPA’s Clean Power Plan never went into effect due to a stay by the U.S. Supreme Court issued in February 2016.),
  •  review of the analysis of social costs of carbon, nitrous oxide and methane, and
  • a review of other provisions concerning oil and gas operations emission standards.

 The Order also requires the U.S. Secretary of the Interior to withdraw the Secretary’s Order prohibiting the leasing of coal on federal lands.
