"EPA Delays Chemical Safety Rule Until 2019"

"The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will delay implementation of an Obama-era chemical safety rule for nearly two years while it reassesses the necessity of the regulation.

The EPA announced on Monday that Administrator Scott Pruitt signed a directive last Friday delaying the chemical plant safety standards until at least Feb. 20, 2019.

The move comes after the EPA delayed the regulation in March amid discussions over the rule’s impact on businesses."
