Trump Proposes Replacing Obama's Clean Power Plan

The Environmental Protection Agency suggested new guidelines that could have dire consequences. 

The Trump administration proposed replacing the Clean Power Plan, the centerpiece of former President Barack Obama's regulatory efforts to combat climate change, in a move critics said would have dire environmental and health consequences.

Reuters reports the proposal released by the Environmental Protection Agency would grant states the ability to write their own weaker regulations for the plants and give them the ability to seek permission to opt out of regulations on power plant emissions.
