Another question. How is this making America Great again? While we are all watching the Coronavirus and other nonsense at the WH, this is happening. Pay attention to what they DO, not what they SAY. Trump's hate for anything Obama is virulent, much like COVID-19. It will kill us all one way or another. Vote BLUE in November 2020 and get rid of the GOP and Trump.

All told, the Trump administration’s environmental rollbacks could significantly increase greenhouse gas emissions and lead to thousands of extra deaths from poor air quality each year, according to energy and legal analysts.

Below, we have summarized each rule that has been targeted for reversal over the past three years. There 100 of these rollbacks!

Air pollution and emissions
1. Weakened Obama-era fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards for passenger cars and light trucks.
E.P.A. and Transportation Department | Read more »
2. Revoked California’s power to set stricter tailpipe emissions standards than the federal government.
E.P.A. | Read more »
3. Withdrew the legal justification for an Obama-era rule that limited mercury emissions from coal power plants.
E.P.A. | Read more »
4. Replaced the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, which would have set strict limits on carbon emissions from coal- and gas-fired power plants, with a new version that would let states set their own rules.
Executive Order; E.P.A. | Read more »
5. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions.
E.P.A. | Read more »
6. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
Interior Department | Read more »
7. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters.
E.P.A. | Read more »
8. Revised a program designed to safeguard communities from increases in pollution from new power plants to make it easier for facilities to avoid emissions regulations.
E.P.A. | Read more »
9. Amended rules that govern how refineries monitor pollution in surrounding communities.
E.P.A. | Read more »
10. Weakened an Obama-era rule meant to reduce air pollution in national parks and wilderness areas.
E.P.A. | Read more »
11. Weakened oversight of some state plans for reducing air pollution in national parks.
12. Relaxed air pollution regulations for a handful of plants that burn waste coal for electricity.
13. Repealed rules meant to reduce leaking and venting of powerful greenhouse gases known as hydrofluorocarbons from large refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
14. Directed agencies to stop using an Obama-era calculation of the social cost of carbon that rulemakers used to estimate the long-term economic benefits of reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Executive Order
15. Withdrew guidance directing federal agencies to include greenhouse gas emissions in environmental reviews. But several district courts have ruled that emissions must be included in such reviews.
Executive Order; Council on Environmental Quality
16. Revoked an Obama executive order that set a goal of cutting the federal government’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent over 10 years.
Executive Order
17. Repealed a requirement that state and regional authorities track tailpipe emissions from vehicles on federal highways.
Transportation Department
18. Lifted a summertime ban on the use of E15, a gasoline blend made of 15 percent ethanol. (Burning gasoline with a higher concentration of ethanol in hot conditions increases smog.)
19. Changed rules to allow states and the E.P.A. to take longer to develop and approve plans aimed at cutting methane emissions from existing landfills.
In progress
20. Submitted notice of intent to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. (The process of withdrawing cannot be completed until November 2020.)
Executive Order
21. Proposed relaxing Obama-era requirements that companies monitor and repair methane leaks at oil and gas facilities.

ETC, ETC, the list goes on.

PabloCruz - "Until this sale, it was owned by an out-of-state LLC, as are many properties in this area. Why are average residents subsidizing these, and other properties like them?"

Good question?

The lots in easement are valued for tax purposes at $10,000/acre.
Apologize for the errors.

2 Corrections:
The lots in easement are valued for tax purposes at $20,000/acre, not $10,00.

Residential lots in the Marshall service district are valued approximately 20
times higher, not 40 times higher.

Why are average residents subsidizing these, and other properties like them?
