Trump signs new environmental executive order


(Worthy News) - President Trump is starting his own government-wide environmental sustainability and energy efficiency program through an executive order he signed late on Thursday.

The order directs federal agencies to manage their buildings, vehicles, and overall operations in order to "optimize energy and environmental performance, reduce waste, and cut costs," according to the White House.

It also calls on the White House Council of Environmental Quality to streamline pre-existing environmental orders by "refocusing agencies on cost-effectively meeting mandates and goals" established by law, as opposed to executive fiat. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
