The Trump administration is rejecting appeals to slow its deregulatory drive while Americans grapple with the coronavirus, pushing major public health and environmental rollbacks closer to enactment in recent days despite the pandemic.
As Americans stockpiled food and medicine and retreated indoors and businesses shuttered in hopes of riding out COVID-19, federal agencies in recent days moved forward on rollbacks that included a widely opposed deregulatory action by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The proposed rule would require disclosure of the raw data behind any scientific study used in the rulemaking process. That includes confidential medical records that opponents say could be used to identify people. [ ]
President Donald Trump and his agency chiefs have less than 10 months left in his current term to complete the administrations business-friendly easing of the way the federal government enforces scores of environment and public health protections.
The Interior Department, for example, is moving ahead with a measure that would greatly ease protections under the more than century-old Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Andrew Cuomo Supports Loosening Restrictions to Restart Economy
I would love for Trump to sign another executive order to reduce EVERY Federal Dept by 20% to cut the deficit....
Seems as if the agenda of the Left with this Corona Virus crap was to stop the President cold by using the virus as an excuse to unwind Trumps red tape cutting mania.
I think they really thought they would be able to take back control and they are finding out once again that DJT is light years ahead of them.

“... despite the pandemicp.”
Shocking that Trump would want to do anything to benefit America’s economy while Greta and the Democrats are trying to close it down.
In the first place, xxcessive bureaucratic burdens need to stand down in any national emergency.
And yes, anyway, we need to get more regulatory agency obstructions out of the way of getting things done to help combat Cov-19, and beyond.
“that would greatly ease protections under the more than century-old Migratory Bird Treaty Act. ”
I’m guessing Ellen is fine with the millions of birds who get killed by the idiotic wind mills.
“Trump agencies steadily push rollbacks as pandemic rages”
they’re pieces of shite fools: it’s the regulatory rollbacks that President Trump has insisted upon that got the ossified fat asses in the FDA, CDC, NIH, FEMA, et. al. out of their cushy chairs and scurrying around to follow President Trump’s orders to fix the problems exposed by the COVID-19 contagion ...
