Democrats now want to explore EPA’s enforcement program under Trump administration

Democrats now in charge of the U.S. House Energy and Commerce committee aren’t letting up in their environmental claims and charges against the Trump Administration.

The Committee leadership plans a Feb. 26 hearing on the Environmental Protection Agency’s enforcement program.

The decision came after the EPA recently reported gains in some areas such as criminal cases.

“Essentially what the EPA has done is take the cop off the beat and protect polluters rather than the average American, and we’re going to change that,” Chairman Frank Pallone said in a videoannouncing the hearing.

Oklahoma 2nd District U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin is a member of the committee. But since he is a Republican, he is in the minority.
