The Washington Post has reported that President Trump was to sign on June 4 an Executive Order invoking a federal law where emergency circumstances make it necessary to take an action with significant environmental impact without observing normal requirements imposed by laws such as the Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Protection Act.  Pipeline projects would reportedly be covered. No language of the Executive Order was available as of late afternoon Thursday.  Additional information will be provided when it is available.  The Post article of June 4 is available here.
