Pebble Gets A Lifeline from The Trump Administration

The Trump administration is throwing a lifeline to the massive Pebble Mine planned near Alaska’s Bristol Bay, as regulators move toward undoing Obama-era environmental restrictions that have thwarted the project.

The Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday said it was resuming consideration of the proposed water pollution restrictions that have effectively stalled the project since they were outlined in 2014. Reconsidering the issue — after a year-and-a-half hiatus — is a necessary prelude to the EPA officially lifting the restrictions later.
