Under the Clean Air Act, USEPA pervasively regulates the American economy. In the Trump Administration, USEPA has attempted to roll-back many areas of regulation while increasing support of renewable fuels and enhancing enforcement of mobile sources. This course examines the most important of these changes and explains the Trump EPA’s degree of success.
