This is quite a remarkable move by President Trump and we strongly encourage you to read this, and the link provided about just how he is taking away the tyrannical power from the EPA and other agencies which act as Congress.
From Free Range Report:
On Wednesday, October 9th, President Trump introduced and signed two executive orders (EO’s) which appear to be inspired, in part, by the horrendous case of elderly Navy Veteran, Joe Robertson, who was prosecuted and imprisoned by the Obama Justice Department for purported violations of the Clean Water Act. Joe Robertson, who passed away earlier this year, was convicted by the federal government in 2016 for improvements he made to a pond on his own property.

Joe Robertson’s case is one of many cited by President Trump as examples of the abuse of Americans by overzealous federal bureaucrats in various agencies. The EO’s are designed to curtail attacks on individual and companies who may violate obscure, informal rules and guidelines which are given the power of law despite the lack of Congress’ participation in rule making. Bureaucratic power is stripped away by President Trump’s EO’s, which classify agency rules and guidelines, whether new or existing, as informative but not legally binding. Furthermore, all federal agencies are now required to publish all existing and future rules and guidance documents on one website which is readily searchable for all.
Transparency in federal agencies will be dramatically increased with the EO’s, which address bureaucratic secrecy in discussions about how existing laws apply and may be implemented without the knowledge of purported violators. Agencies are now required to inform individuals and companies about what interpretations and processes are being considered in their cases.
