Regulatory Tracker

Under former President Trump, environmental agencies systematically tried to weaken, or rescind and replace, rules designed to protect the environment and public health. EELP closely tracked the Trump administration’s environmental deregulatory efforts in this Regulatory Rollback Tracker. The table below links you to pages that describe the history of each rule and the status of the Trump-era rollback efforts, including litigation and court decisions. We continued to update these pages with the initial actions of the Biden administration during its first 100 days.

After the 2020 presidential election, we shifted our focus to assessing the incoming administration’s actions. See our work analyzing the Biden administration’s environmental and climate actions on our Tracking the Biden-Harris Climate & Environmental Agenda page (including our Biden Environmental Action Tracker spreadsheet).
