Coal executive Bob Murray drafted 6 orders on coal, climate for Trump

Read the full story from E&E News.

Coal executive Bob Murray last year presented Trump administration officials with half a dozen draft executive orders aimed at exiting the Paris climate accord and peeling back coal regulations.

All President Trump had to do was sign them.

The documents, released this afternoon under the Freedom of Information Act to E&E News, reveal new details about a secretive meeting in March of last year among Murray, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and other top agency officials.

It does not appear that Trump signed the orders.
