All Federal agencies must solicit public comments before implementing major changes in regulations. BMore Indivisible submitted a public comment to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency opposing Trump’s sweeping Executive Order 13777 which guts long-established environmental protections and threatens the health of the Chesapeake Bay. With the help of Indivisible Baltimore, a web form was created to make it easy for Indivisible members to submit their own comments opposing deregulation of important environmental protections. Maryland Environmental Health Network helped provide members with information on the consequences of removing environmental protections on the Chesapeake Bay and Baltimore City.
Update: The Washington Post reported that the EPA received over 55,100 public comments, almost all of them opposing Trump’s gutting of environmental protections
