US: Trump 2.0 May Rollback More Green Regulations, Says EPA chief

Environment Protection Agency chief Andrew Wheeler suspected that re-election of Trump would further dilute industrial environmental regulations. He opined that the government might establish cost-benefit analysis of new regulations to back the same. In his first 3 years, Trump has altered more than 100 environment rules that, according to experts, could increase emissions. Some of the rollbacks have been criticized by the businesses they were meant to help, added Wheeler.
