Tuesday, April 18th - Comment on EPA regulations
In accordance with Executive Order 13777, “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda,” EPA is seeking input on regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification.
You can go to this page and let the EPA know what you think about their desire to gut the EPA regulations. From The Hill:
President Trump has signed an executive order Friday establishing regulatory watchdogs inside federal agencies who are responsible for enforcing his agenda.
The Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda executive order will create a task force and regulatory reform officer at each federal agency, appointed by agency heads.
The task forces will be responsible for combing through existing regulations within 90 days to determine which ones can be repealed or modified.
You can go hear and leave a comment letting them know to stop trying to roll back all the EPA regulations that serve to protect our environment.
How can Chicago be broke? The city's budget is around $20 billion. Yet, if we recover the money stolen from us, uncover the money hidden from is and discover the money we leave on the table every year, we could potentially have $5 billion in new savings and revenues at our disposal to fund the city we love. Tom Tresser, author and editor of Chicago is Not Broke, puts the lie to the claim that our city is broke and offers a cogent, solution-focused analysis of Chicago's financial state and suggests a new progressive agenda for how we can fund the city we deserve. Hear the man, buy the book, and join Indivisible Chicago and Printers Row to find out how you can help!
