Coming soon to US national parks: Oil and gas pipelines, thanks to Trump’s new plan

“Yes, that’s right, the infrastructure plan would allow for faster approval of constructing oil pipelines to go through our national parks” writes Andrew Freedman for mashable.com. But the Trump administration sees that as a barrier to the swift creation of jobs, and the transport of more oil and gas.The Trump administration’s big infrastructure plan, unveiled Monday, amounts to the largest rewrite of one of the nation’s bedrock environmental laws in decades.Currently, though, if you want to build an oil pipeline through, say, Glacier National Park in Montana, you need a specific act of Congress in order to allow it.
