Regulatory Rollback Tracker

The HLS Environmental Law Program is tracking environmental regulatory rollbacks of the Trump Administration. This table links you to pages that describe what’s at stake, current status, and history of the rule development and deregulation efforts for each rule listed. The table also identifies all open comment periods, and lets you submit a comment in just one click. We will be adding rules to this table and will keep the posts current, so check back for updates.
