Florida Congressman drafts bill to abolish EPA

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bill-to-abolish-epa_us_5890e638e4b02772c4e9c552?ld4owug4bfgsnhfr


Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has drafted a bill to “completely abolish” the Environmental Protection Agency, according to an email obtained by The Huffington Post.


The freshman congressman sent the email on Tuesday morning to lawmakers who might co-sponsor the legislation, which would shutter the EPA by the end of next year.


“Our small businesses cannot afford to cover the costs associated with compliance, too often leading to closed doors and unemployed Americans,” Gaetz wrote. “It is time to take back our legislative power from the EPA and abolish it permanently.”


The move comes a day after President Donald Trump signed an executive order requiring agencies to eliminate two regulations for every one they propose. Trump won a surprise election victory partly on a pledge to boost the U.S. economy by slashing federal rules for businesses, particularly environmental restrictions.
