Coalition forms to back Trump rollback of major environmental law

A new coalition aims to garner support for President Trump‘s plans to overhaul the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), a major environmental law.

GOP operative Phil Cox is the chairman of the coalition, named Building a Better America. The former executive director of the Republican Governors Association also led Trade Works for America, a pro-trade group that pushed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

“The president is a builder, he understands these issues and I think he’s shown great leadership in reforming NEPA. Now we’ve just got to go ahead and make sure it gets done,” Cox said in an exclusive interview with The Hill.
