There's the Cold War, and then there's the "Coal War"

The Trump/Republican plan to become more competitive with China evidently is to become more like China.

The House voted against this, and now....
U.S. Senate approves measure to overturn stream-protection rule

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate has given final legislative approval to a measure that scuttles a new regulation aimed at preventing coal mining debris from being dumped into nearby streams.

The Senate's 54-45 vote sends the measure to President Donald Trump, who is expected to sign it.

Republicans and some Democrats say the rule could eliminate thousands of coal-related jobs and ignores dozens of federal, state and local regulations already in place.

The Interior Department said in announcing the rule in December that it would protect 6,000 miles of streams and 52,000 acres of forests, preventing coal mining debris from being dumped into nearby waters.

The vote was the first in a series of actions Republicans are taking in coming weeks to reverse years of what they call excessive regulation during Obama's presidency.
UPDATE: U.S. Senate approves measure to overturn stream-protection rule

The Wrecking Crew in action.
Thanks from Clara007

I would not use a pc correct term. You leftards got that all sewed up. But, I would call it sediment that is washed from a coal mining operation into local watersheds. Which brings up an entirely different image than "dumped"

Oh but your side does have its "politically correct-rightard version" terminology, and perhaps unbeknownst to you, you gave the "politically correct-rightard version" terms for "dumped."

Thank you.

Try taking on the meaty part of the OP, or go away. Rightard trolling is something else....

Isn't "sediment that is washed from a coal mining operation into local watersheds" PC for dumped?
