EPA Mission Tracker
EPA leadership under President Trump is removing, weakening, and delaying many rules that protect public health and the environment. As a result, the agency is on a “reverse mission.” Instead of working to deliver environmental and public health protections, the Trump EPA is allowing higher levels of pollution for longer periods of time. EPA leadership is also undertaking a larger and harder to repair project: dismantling the agency’s ability to do its job.
EPA leadership is undermining the agency’s capacity to develop, implement, and enforce effective programs that reduce pollution and serve vital public needs. These efforts will leave behind a regime that delivers fewer reductions in harmful pollutants and an agency that lacks the institutional tools to protect public health and the environment.
Can EPA maintain its mission? See below for our updated posts describing changes to critical processes that enable the agency to carry out its mission at the intersection between public health, science, and the environment.
