“Air Pollution: EPA Finally Ditches Toxics Rule, Industry Shrugs”

“After years of work, the Trump administration has succeeded in formally unraveling a venerable industrial air toxics policy.

Prompting the question are newly released EPA documents suggesting that relatively few companies have so far taken advantage of laxer pollution control requirements following repeal of the “once in, always in” framework. The agency initially scrapped the Clinton-era policy with a memo in early 2018 and then embedded that decision in a final rule published yesterday.”
