Executive masters in business administration
Last week was a busy one for people watching the federal government’s rules on energy and the environment. With the opening of a new administration, the Republican-dominated Congress has been quick to kill regulations from the previous administration and enact new ones of its own. Below we take a glance at some of the most noteworthy actions taken by the executive branch and Congress this week. 1. Rolling back the stream protection rule: Congress wasted no time wielding a previously little-used rule called the Congressional Review Act, which allows the legislative branch to repeal rules and regulations passed in recent months. According to the Federation of American Scientists (via Vox), the 115th Congress can now overturn rules submitted on or after June 13, 2016 in an expedited reversal process. The stream protection rule, finalized in late December, is among those rules that found itself on the chopping block. The rule required coal companies that had … [Read more...] about Relaxing coal pollution, methane flaring rules: This week in Congress
The Trump administration today announced a new proposal to reverse Obama-era regulations that limit how much methane, a potent greenhouse gas, the oil and natural gas industries are allowed to emit. The Environmental Protection Agency's proposed amendments would "remove unnecessary regulatory duplication" put into place in 2016, according to a press release. The proposals made today are separate from and in addition to a 2018 proposed rule that eased methane reporting and monitoring requirements for oil- and gas-extraction businesses. The proposed plan (PDF) would "rescind emissions limits for methane from the production and processing segments of the industry," the EPA says. The proposal would also remove parts of the transmission and storage segments of the oil and gas industry—generally called the midstream business—from being subject to regulation, by claiming the agency was out of line when it added sources such as transmission compressor stations, … [Read more...] about Trump admin. announces plan to kill 2016 methane emissions limits
US federal investigators have charged Chinese vendor Huawei with financial fraud for stealing intellectual property from T-Mobile and trying to sidestep US sanctions on Iran. On Monday, the US Department of Justice announced 23 criminal charges against Huawei, claiming it conspired for years to violate US law. The charges relate to bank fraud and an attempt to steal a smartphone-testing robot from T-Mobile, not state-sponsored espionage. But the suspected crimes underscore the danger of having Huawei sell its technology in the US, according to FBI Director Christopher Wray. "We have to carefully consider the risks if we are going to allow them into our telecommunication networks," he said in a press conference announcing the indictments. Thirteen of the charges deal with Huawei's decade-long effort to secure funding from banks while covering up its business ownership in a company affiliate located in Iran—a violation of sanctions imposed on the country, US officials claim. The 10 … [Read more...] about US Charges Huawei for Stealing T-Mobile Tech, Violating Sanctions
