Trump’s Environmental Rollbacks Were Fast. It Could Get Messy in Court. - The New York Times
Some Obama-era rules have been blocked or delayed by courts. But there is one big difference, Mr. Parenteu said. Even though some rules “pushed the edges of legal authority,” the Obama administration mustered a stronger defense by assembling “thousands of pages of support and technical analysis, laid out in mind-numbing detail,” he said. “Here, you have much more ad hoc, knee-jerk decision-making.”

Interior rescinds climate, conservation policies because they’re ‘inconsistent’ with Trump’s energy goals - The Washington Post
Alex Daue, assistant director of energy and climate at the Wilderness Society, said in an interview that Interior officials will still face the same legal obligations to reduce negative environmental impacts on public land, but “they no longer have the tools to do so efficiently and effectively.”

The series is called Families Burdened by Obamacare. In one, an exasperated man from Fort Worth, Texas, complains that is “wholly inadequate” and extremely difficult to use. “It was wholly frustrating to try to comply with the mandate from this government,” he continues. “All the while, I’m saying ‘What’s wrong with the free enterprise?’”
