(Worthy News) - In the latest move by the Trump administration to boost fossil fuels and cut back on regulations, President Donald Trump announced two executive orders on Wednesday that are aimed at cutting "unnecessary red tape" for American energy companies by making it difficult for states to block projects by using the Clean Water Act.

"My action today will cut through destructing permitting delays and denials," Trump said at the International Union of Operating Engineers International Training and Education Center in Crosby, Texas.

Addressing a crowd of supporters and hard-hat wearing workers, the president boasted about the work his administration has done to boost fossil fuel industry in an area of the country where oil-and-gas is an economic lifeblood. [ Source: ABC News (Read More...) ]
