Experts: EPA regulation cuts likely to hurt children most
President Donald Trump's proposed budget cuts include reducing the Environmental Protection Agency's budget by 31 percent, eliminating many of the regulatory programs that have helped improve air quality and standards that protect kids from pollutants and toxic substances. The new EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, who has sued the agency over regulations numerous times, has also taken steps in recent weeks to dismantle key environmental and health protection programs. Researchers say that if implemented, these cuts will have long-term and costly health impacts on children.
