Trump Signs Bill Scrapping Coal Mining Law

With coal miners and allies at his side, President Donald Trump signed an executive order today overruling Barack Obama’s “job-killing” coal mining regulations.

Obama’s order blocked mining remains from being disposed into nearby lands and streams, though the legislation carried immediate potential to forfeit thousands of jobs in coal mining states. Obama’s law also carried enough weight to look the other way on established local, state and federal regulations.

The entirety of Trump’s erasure of the law can be watched below:
