WASHINGTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the 2018 Year in Review outlining major accomplishments and environmental progress during the Trump Administration.
“Over the past year, the Trump Administration has continued to deliver on its promise to provide greater regulatory certainty while protecting public health and the environment,” said EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “Over the past year, we finalized 13 major deregulatory actions, deleted all or part of 22 sites from Superfund’s National Priorities List — the largest number of deletions in one year since FY 2005 — and continued to safeguard our nation’s water supply as well as make historic improvements in air quality. These represent a few of the many accomplishments the Agency achieved under President Trump’s direction. America is on a path to a stronger, safer, and cleaner future.”
