Recently, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt resigned at least in part due to numerous “ethics scandals”. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/05/climate/scott-pruitt-epa-trump.html Even so it is unclear whether Andrew Wheeler, his planned successor, will make any “policy” as opposed to “stylistic” changes. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/on-small-business/new-epa-boss-same-as-old-boss-pruitt-policy-to-stay-intact/2018/07/06/bcfb058e-8125-11e8-b3b5-b61896f90919_story.html?utm_term=.fee579fb1614
In general, InternationalMosaic.com’s editors have taken a dim view of the EPA’s policies during President Trump’s administration. Thus, when Mr. Pruitt proposed a regulation that may eviscerate environmental controls and let polluting industries run rampant, InternationalMosaic.com started objecting. For an example, please see the comments dated May 24, 2018. https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=EPA-HQ-OA-2018-0259-1037
