August Environment & Climate News:

Senate Reconsiders Bills  to Reclaim Regulatory Authority

The August issue of Environment & Climate News reports the U.S. Senate is taking new steps to reassert its constitutional responsibility for federal rulemaking. Earlier this year, the Senate
successfully deployed the Congressional Review Act to reverse 14 Obama administration regulations.

It is very important Congress reassert its authority and say, "The executive branch cannot go at it alone," said Jeff Stier, a senior fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research.
Also in this issue:
  • U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton introduced the Water Rights Protection Act. The bill would prohibit federal agencies from requiring the transfer of privately held water rights to the federal government in exchange for granting or renewing a permit for the use of federal land.

The full text of the issue is available online in Adobe Acrobat’s PDF format: August 2017 Environment & Climate News.
