The Trump regime temporarily suspends EPA grants and contracts

January 24, 2017

  It had already been reported that Donald Trump put a temporary halt on Federal agency hirings and now it is being reported in this story that he has ordered the EPA to halt issuing Federal grants and contracts to give him time to review them. Here is more:

The Washington Post reported that incoming EPA administration officials sent an email Friday to employees of the Office of Acquisition Management to temporarily suspend “all contract and grant awards.”

Myron Ebell, who oversaw the EPA transition for the Trump administration, said the move is not unlike what other administrations have done.

“They’re trying to freeze things to make sure nothing happens they don’t want to have happen, so any regulations going forward, contracts, grants, hires, they want to make sure to look at them first,” Ebell told ProPublica on Monday. “This may be a little wider than some previous administrations, but it’s very similar to what others have done.”

  I am sure the left is going to claim this proves Donald Trump wants dirty air and water but as you can see this is nothing that has not been done by previous regimes. This is the same EPA, of course, which polluted the Animas River in 2015 but the left loves to ignore that little tidbit. Perhaps if Donald Trump had been President in 2015 this accident would not have occurred…

    Allow the new Cabinet Secretary time to review what is going on in his agency what a novel idea! [sarc] Idiots who have never worked in the real world now realize they have a boss.

      It sounds like common sense but I am sure the left is going to be vocal about this one.

    The real, common sense approach is the disbanding of the EPA and start all over from scratch. Even better have this despicable band of lifetime bureaucrats train foreign workers to do whatever the hell it is they do. Right from start the budget would be trimmed 90%.

      I agree Peter. They ’cause’ the problems (like filling and unplugging the Silver King Mine in CO to rundown into the growing fields of agriculture downriver, not to mention fish kill) then request money to clean it up and ban mining. There’s ALOT of ‘canning and firing’ that needs to be in all dept.s of slim buildup.

      I agree with both you and Zip on this one! But I would not stop with the EPA. Great pic Zip, I wonder if Mr. Clean can even clean up this mess.
