President Donald Trump plans to introduce executive actions aimed at scaling back Obama-era climate change initiatives, according to the newsletter Inside EPA.
The president intends to sign the actions during a visit to the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters for Scott Pruitt's swearing in as head of the agency, Inside EPA reported Tuesday, citing an administration source. The timing of the event has not been determined because the full Senate has not yet confirmed Pruitt.
The Hill reported on the Inside EPA report on Wednesday. The White House did not immediately return CNBC's request for comment.
The source did not share the contents of the executive actions, but told Inside EPA they would "suck the air out" of the room.
