Trump took the first steps to make it easier for frackers to pollute on public lands

The Trump administration announced this week, via a court filing, that it intends to roll back a rule meant to safeguard human health and the environment from the effects of fracking on public and tribal lands.

In a motion filed Wednesday in the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the Trump administration indicated that it will begin a process to rewrite the fracking rule, which was put in place by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in 2015.
