WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed legislation striking down a rule that requires oil and gas companies to disclose payments to the U.S. or foreign governments for commercial development.
Trump said the legislation, rolling back a regulation from the Dodd-Frank financial oversight law, was part of an effort to bring back jobs “big league.”
Trump said, “We’re bringing them back at the plant level. We’re bringing them back at the mine level. The energy jobs are coming back.”
