The Trump administration is proposing a $1 billion, seven-year plan to clean up the electricity sector.
“We’ve made great strides in getting cleaner air and cleaner water in our country, but we still have work to do,” President Donald Trump said at the signing ceremony for the Trump Administration’s plan to “put the brakes on carbon emissions, clean up our air and water, and bring our energy to a level that’s not only affordable and accessible to everyone, but also sustainable.”
Trump’s plan is the first of its kind to address the carbon emissions of the electricity industry, which has been under heavy scrutiny from the EPA and Congress.
Trump’s plan would reduce CO2 emissions by 10 to 20 percent by 2025, reduce power plant emissions by up to half, and phase out the use of coal by 2022.
Trump and his administration have been criticized by environmentalists for their plans, which have faced criticism from some environmentalists as a boon to the fossil fuel industry.
While the plan is a first for the administration, it is also likely to face scrutiny from Democrats, who have been vocal about wanting the EPA to stop regulating the energy industry and instead focus on tackling climate change.
The plan has been the subject of several lawsuits filed by environmental groups.
The Sierra Club is suing the EPA over the plan, which seeks to roll back the Clean Power Plan.
In addition, the Trump administration has been accused of misleading the public about its plan by releasing misleading information about the costs of the plan.
The Environmental Protection Agency has also faced criticism for the cost of the proposed rule, which would have mandated more stringent regulations on power plants than any other federal regulation.
Despite the high cost of EPA regulations, many critics have noted that the Trump plan would have a massive impact on the energy sector.
The EPA estimated that the rule would cost $4.7 billion to $5.2 billion a year.
Trump has said that the EPA will save money by cutting regulations.
The administration also wants to rollback regulations on the coal industry, but this is unlikely to happen.
With the Trump EPA taking action on the carbon pollution, many analysts have called on Trump to rescind the CleanPower Plan, which could cost the economy more than $1 trillion.
