Environmentalists Ready to Sue to Fight EPA Deregulation

By Tim Pearce

A major environmental group is prepping dozens of lawsuits against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for rolling back environmental regulations, The Washington Examiner reports.

Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) President Rhea Suh circulated a note to supporters Saturday, asking for more money as her organization readies for the upcoming court battles.

“It’s a new year, but EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt wants to roll back the clock on environmental protections and drag us back decades,” Suh wrote, according to The Washington Examiner.

“The best antidote to Pruitt’s illegal attacks on our environment? Federal court,” she added. “We’re gearing up to file suits on dozens of fronts in the year ahead.”

The NRDC tweeted out a story Sunday warning about the “decades” worth of damage EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has done to the agency.

The EPA is on track to retire half of its staff by the end of President Donald Trump’s first term in office. The agency’s workforce could be the leanest it has been since 1972, two years after the EPA was created.

The NRDC, along with other green groups, unsuccessfully attempted to halt Trump’s “one in, two out” executive order, saying that forcing agencies to cut two regulations before implementing another was irrational, The Hill reports.

The White House announced in December that since the “one in, two out” rule went into effect, 22 regulations have been cut for every new one adopted. A senior official told The Washington Free Beacon the cuts have saved $8.1 billion in lifetime net regulatory costs.
