The Sidestepping Of Regulations Around

Trump Administration Provides Waivers To Oil Companies

The Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico was one of the worst oils spill disasters in US History. The Obama administration wrote specific regulations in response to prevent another disaster from happening again.

Since 2016, the Trump administration has given out many waivers to those regulations as oil companies have stated the regulations will slow their process down. The waivers mean that a disaster like the Deepwater Horizon can happen again at any moment.

I rant in this episode because it doesn’t make sense to provide waivers to regulations that will save lives and protect the US economy along coastal states.

Do you agree with me about the waivers? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group:
