President Donald Trump’s most recent activity involves passing an executive order aimed at reducing restrictions and regulatory burden in order to speed up infrastructure projects. This revokes an Obama-era rule aimed at imposing strict reviews of projects in flood-prone areas in order to battle sea-level rise and flooding. The Obama-era rule required scientific factoring of how infrastructure projects would withstand floods and rise in sea level. Eliminating this rule means focusing on short-term gains and ignoring long-term outlook.
