Trump freezes all EPA grants

Independent, UK - Staff at the Environmental Protection Agency have by the incoming Trump administration been told to freeze all the grants designed to fund research, redevelopment of former industrial sites, air quality monitoring and education but were banned from discussing it with anyone outside the agency. It is currently unclear whether the freeze is temporary or permanent as the Senate has not yet officially confirmed Mr Trump’s pick for EPA chief, Scott Pruitt.
