The Hill reports that Trump’s administration is “taking a big step forward” in its effort to replace former President Obama’s rule to reduce CO2 emissions from power plants.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has this week, sent a proposed replacement for the Clean Power Plan to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review.

The OMB review, an internal process that checks for compliance with various laws and administration priorities, is the final step before the rule can be released publicly and made available for comment.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that several top aides to former EPA administrator Scott Pruitt are leaving the agency, less than a week after Pruitt resigned his post.

The list includes strategic communications adviser Jahan Wilcox, longtime aide Lincoln Ferguson, deputy White House liaison Hayley Ford, and EPA spokeswoman Kelsi Daniell.
