As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by YAHOO.COM:

Pruitt has proposed three of the most radical policies of his 16-month tenure. Two proposals threaten to cripple the EPA’s environmental rule-making process, while the third guts the only major federal policy to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

On Thursday, the EPA issued a formal notice to solicit ideas on how the agency performs regulatory cost-benefit analysis, heeding industry players who complained that the Obama administration exaggerated the benefits of environmental rules and downplayed the costs to companies. The proposal could have wide-ranging effects, creating obstacles for future regulations and compelling the agency to reassess existing rules.

The article goes on to state the following:

Over a month ago, Pruitt proposed a rule to dramatically limit the public health research the EPA can use to write regulations. The new rule would bar regulators from citing any research that cannot release raw data, disqualifying most major epidemiological studies that grant subjects anonymity to share personal health information.

Three weeks earlier, Pruitt … announced plans to reverse an Obama-era rule tightening fuel economy standards on vehicles.
