Trump Doesn’t Care About Fuel Emmisions- Transforming EPA Regulations

Published

on

Tuesday the Washington Times had a meltdown about the Trump administration’s future plans for easing the Former President Barack H. Obama’s obsession with weather change policies for fuel emissions.

“A draft of a regulation prepared this summer would freeze an Obama-era program that was intended to improve fuel efficiency and cut pollution.

In excerpts obtained by The Associated Press, the administration argues that heavier vehicles are safer than lighter ones and that people would drive more — and be exposed to increased risk — if their cars get better mileage.

Transportation experts dispute the arguments. Automotive engineer Giorgio Rizzoni of Ohio State University calls the administration’s safety claims “a stretch,” reported the Washington Times.

BUT THEY DIDN’T CITE THIS

DI FI SAYS:  WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE! AGAIN

According to The Hill, “The Trump administration is planning a proposal to block California regulators from enforcing their own emissions standards for vehicles sold in the state.

Bloomberg News reported Monday that the proposal will be part of a regulation the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will jointly propose in the coming days to freeze or reduce federal greenhouse gas emissions and fuel efficiency rules for cars.

The proposal would set up a battle with California over whether the Clean Air Act allows its decades-long aggressive crackdown on car emissions. The fight is almost certain to go to court if the administration pursues it.

The rules have become part of California’s environmental identity,” they reported.

TRUMP’S WAR WITH GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS CONTINUES

From Left leading Axios, “The Trump administration is preparing to take a two-pronged approach to rolling back regulations cutting methane emissions from oil and gas wells, Axios has learned,” they reported.

The plans, as articulated by an administration official and corroborated by others tracking the issue closely, signal the EPA is inclined to pursue a more aggressive rollback instead of a replacement approach.

  1. The EPA is planning to soon issue a smaller, more technical rule-making that environmentalists say will weaken the Obama-era rule currently on the books, which affects new oil and gas wells only,” they reported.

Trump Has A New Trade Deal: We’re In The Money, Statement From White House

Published

on

Tuesday, the White House released a statement about a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada that was met with great enthusiasm and excitement.

“USMCA is a great deal for all three countries, solves the many deficiencies and mistakes in NAFTA, greatly opens markets to our farmers and manufacturers, reduces trade barriers to the U.S. and will bring all three Great Nations together in competition with the rest of the world,” Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America.

From the release:

  • President Trump has negotiated a new United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), which will benefit American workers and businesses where North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has failed.
  • For years, politicians have called for the renegotiation of NAFTA, but President Trump is following through where others have failed.
  • This new agreement will update and rebalance the 24-year-old NAFTA with modern provisions to serve the interests of American workers and businesses.

BENEFITTING BUSINESSES, FARMERS, AND WORKERS: President Trump has secured a number of wins for American businesses and workers in USMCA.

  • The Administration worked closely with partners to create a better deal that advances the interests of American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses.
  • American auto manufacturers and workers will benefit from new rules of origin requiring 75 percent of auto content to be produced in North America.
    • The new agreement will incentivize billions of dollars in additional United States vehicle and auto parts production.
    • Workers will also benefit from rules that will incentivize the use of high-wage manufacturing labor in the auto sector, supporting better jobs for American workers.
  • USMCA’s labor chapter represents the strongest labor provisions of any trade agreement.
    • USMCA’s labor chapter is a core part of the agreement and will make the labor provisions fully enforceable.
  • USMCA is a win for American farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness as it includes important improvements that will enable food and agriculture to trade more fairly.
    • Canada will eliminate its “Class 7” program that allows low-priced dairy ingredients to undersell American dairy products.
    • Canada will provide new access for American dairy products, eggs, and poultry.

MODERNIZING OUR TRADE RELATIONSHIP: USMCA will bring our trade relationship with Canada and Mexico into the 21st century.

  • NAFTA failed to keep up with the United States’ changing economy.
    • For years, NAFTA rules have helped incentivize offshoring, leading many manufacturing jobs to leave the United States.
  • The new agreement includes a modernized, high-standard chapter that provides strong protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights.
    • This includes 10 years of data protection for biologic drugs and a large scope of products eligible for protection.
  • USMCA contains the strongest measures on digital trade of any agreement.
    • This includes rules to ensure data can be transferred cross-border and to minimize limits on where data can be stored.

Trump Instantly Sues California Over Net Neutrality

Published

on

Sunday, the Department of Justice worked swiftly to announce a legal proceeding against the state of California for their new law imposing net neutrality protections.

According to the AP:

“The lawsuit filed Sunday by the U.S. Department of Justice came roughly an hour after Gov. Jerry Brown signed the law.

The Federal Communications Commission last year repealed rules preventing internet companies from exercising more control over what people watch and see on the internet.

California’s law seeks to reinstate those rules.

The lawsuit argues that California’s approach is “unlawful and anti-consumer” because it imposes burdensome regulations on the Internet and goes against the federal government’s approach.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he will defend the federal government’s position.”

Justice Department Files Net Neutrality Lawsuit Against the State of California

The Justice Department today filed a lawsuit against the state of California alleging that Senate Bill 822, an Internet regulation bill signed into law earlier today by Governor Jerry Brown, unlawfully imposes burdens on the Federal Government’s deregulatory approach to the Internet, announced Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Acting Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio, Assistant Attorney General Joseph H. Hunt for the Justice Department’s Civil Division, and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai.

In 1996, a bipartisan Congress decided that the Internet should remain “unfettered by Federal or State regulation.”  Since 2002, the FCC has accordingly classified broadband Internet access as an “information service” that is exempt from public-utility regulations. The FCC briefly departed from this classification in a 2015 Order, which imposed restrictions on the freedom of the Internet. In 2018, the FCC returned to its prior light-touch framework, ensuring that Internet access services are free and guided by a uniform set of federal rules, rather than by a patchwork of state and local regulations. The United States concluded that California, through Senate Bill 822, is attempting to subvert the Federal Government’s deregulatory approach by imposing burdensome state regulations on the free Internet, which is unlawful and anti-consumer.

In filing the complaint, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued the following statement:

“Under the Constitution, states do not regulate interstate commerce—the federal government does. Once again the California legislature has enacted an extreme and illegal state law attempting to frustrate federal policy. The Justice Department should not have to spend valuable time and resources to file this suit today, but we have a duty to defend the prerogatives of the federal government and protect our Constitutional order.  We will do so with vigor. We are confident that we will prevail in this case—because the facts are on our side.”

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai issued the following statement:

“I’m pleased the Department of Justice has filed this suit.  The Internet is inherently an interstate information service.  As such, only the federal government can set policy in this area.  And the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit recently reaffirmed that state regulation of information services is preempted by federal law.

“Not only is California’s Internet regulation law illegal, it also hurts consumers.  The law prohibits many free-data plans, which allow consumers to stream video, music, and the like exempt from any data limits.  They have proven enormously popular in the marketplace, especially among lower-income Americans.  But notwithstanding the consumer benefits, this state law bans them.

“The Internet is free and open today, and it will continue to be under the light-touch protections of the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom Order.  I look forward to working with my colleagues and the Department of Justice to ensure the Internet remains ‘unfettered by Federal or State regulation,’ as federal law requires, and the domain of engineers, entrepreneurs, and technologists, not lawyers and bureaucrats.”
