Trump Has Repealed These 7 Pieces Of Obama’s Environmental Legacy
President Donald Trump signed executive orders and new legislation this week that repealed much of President Obama’s environmental legacy.
Trump eliminated the Clean Power Plan (CPP) as well as rules and regulations from several different federal agencies that had been implemented as part of Obama’s environmentalist agenda.

“Repealing those rules requires months if not years of rule-making and the inevitable follow-on litigation before they will be completely gone,” Sgamma continued.
