"A leaked draft of the Trump plan shows it’s a scam. It calls for cutting or significantly changing at least 10 bedrock environmental laws  to make it easier for corporations to bypass critical protections for air, water, and wildlife. It would prioritize polluter profits and cut communities out of the decision-making process for major developments in their neighborhoods. Corporations would be able to sidestep public health, worker safety, and environmental protections for infrastructure projects, including for toll roads, pipelines, drilling projects, and new mines. It allows polluters to skirt landmark public health protections like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, all while depriving funding for improvements for clean drinking water systems. It grants authority to Interior Sec'y Zinke to unilaterally approve new gas pipelines through National Parks."
