"Regulations: Mum's The Word About EPA's Rule-Cutting Task Force"

"Eight months after President Trump established regulatory reform task forces at agencies, the U.S. EPA panel's work is still shrouded in secrecy.

Trump's executive order in February directed agencies to set up task forces to target regulations for eradication, revision or replacement.

At EPA, which has been at the forefront of Trump's efforts to slash regulations, there have been no details about rules being put on the chopping block and what shareholders are being consulted even though the president's order required the task force to submit a progress report to Administrator Scott Pruitt by May 25 and 'on a schedule determined by the agency head thereafter.'

No such report has been made public."
