EPA Outlines Ideas for Cutting Red Tape

June 1, 2011 -- Chemical reporting, sanitary sewer overflow and lead paint are among the regulatory areas in which the Environmental Protection Agency plans to make changes this year, according to its regulatory review plan.

The Obama administration published regulatory reviews by 30 agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy, last week.

The White House said that the reports, prepared to comply with the president’s January order on reducing red tape, identified billions of dollars in savings.
