Trump cancels rules for oil and gas

ABILENE, TX - Over at the white house the Trump Administration is killing offshore drilling safety regulations from the Obama era.

The rules were proposed after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico that killed eleven people
the old regulations required companies to disclose the chemicals used in fracking.
In 2015 a judge in Wyoming blocked a vote at the last minute but the US Interior Department says the cancellation is now in effect.
