President Trump Signs Bill Repealing Obama’s Lame-Duck Coal Regulation (Video)…

Another Campaign Promise Fulfilled – People’s President Trump signs a resolution of disapproval bill today eliminating one of President Obama’s last minute regulations intended to cripple the coal industry.

Prior to signing the repeal, President Trump held a brief presser with legislators and some very happy coal miners.  WATCH:

The bill, called a resolution of disapproval, was passed by the Senate and House using special powers under the Congressional Review Act to reverse regulations imposed by a President during the lame duck session.

The resolution repealed the Interior Department’s Stream Protection Rule, which was a layering of additional compliance regulation on top of existing EPA regulation which regulates waste water runoff from mining activity into rivers and streams.

Current EPA rules already covered the issue, and the last minute Obama rule was simply paperwork and bureaucracy, via regulatory reporting and compliance record keeping.

    Cool! When I got stopped at a BNSF railroad crossing twice last week and saw 100+ empty coal hopper cars going toward Wyoming’s Powder River coal country each time, I knew something was in the works. You gotta have the rail cars in place to fill them fast. Annnd here it is.

    Thank you President Trump. And wasn’t that great of him to give everyone a share of the limelight?
    MAGA!

    Now we need to ask him to undo Zero’s land grabs, especially the massive one in Southern Utah that, just like the one sneaky Al Gore tricked Willy into signing. The former having been engineered to take around a million acres of the cleanest burning coal in the World off the table, forever, by creating a National Monument that no one asked for, the Escalante Staircase if I recall correctly.

    Al did it for a Chinese payoff, and for his mansions and jets permitting hom to claim to be a champion climate change warrior.

    Zero did it to destroy the industry, steal more land that should be state land open to development, and I’m sure there was a payoff for him also.

    Repatriate Lands Stolen via The National Monuments Act!

      What would it take for President Trump to reverse the ban on anthracite coal mining in the region that President Clinton, in his lame duck days, declared (I think) a national monument? This action was clearly a sop to his Indonesian donors, as it put a big chunk of our hard (clean) coal off limits, a boon to Indonesian anthracite coal.

        That bs is what makes my blood boil. Trump needs to give that back to us, the American people. I’m very excited about this confirmation. And I look forward to seeing the environmental wackos lose what’s left of their minds by going all splodey head. They can take their snail darter or darter snail crap and put it where the sun don’t shine.

    Like Obama’s EPA that intentionally released mine waste and polluted the Animas River in Colorado which also affected Arizona and New Mexico.

    I just watched this video. Talk about getting coal dust in my eyes. Darn waterworks will not stop. I’m so proud of our President, busting my buttons. He shared the podium which was awesome. So happy for our coal miners all over the country. This is truly a big part of #MAGA. God bless PDJT.

    I seem to remember “them” saying that no matter what anyone else ever did, coal was dead and gone in this country. I guess our President Trump just waved his magic wand again(per obama). What a fun day!

    I cried tears of joy when watching this video. To listen to Trump acknowledge the importance of the coal miners and to encourage them to share a few words, just left me speechless. I admire our President more and more with each passing day. Thanks Sundance for posting this video.

    NEVER FORGET – The whole (insert expletives) Green Energy thing was a huge flow of hundreds of billions US TAXPAYER $$$$$$$ – going to (insert expletives) Obama crony donors. It was a (insert expletives) huge money laundering scheme.

    NEVER EVER FORGET THAT.

    Obama hates America and Americans and always has.

    From day one, he did everything in his power to destroy the USA. He is still trying to do that even out of office.
