President Trump is unveiling some new executive orders aimed at boosting U.S. oil and gas production. Speaking in the Houston area today, Trump signed two executive actions designed to cut red tape to streamline the approval of pipelines. Trump said energy infrastructure is being held back by special interest groups and bureaucracies. The orders limit state's rights to delay construction of pipelines under the Clean Water Act. They are the latest actions by the Trump administration to ease regulations on the oil industry.
