Trump's EPA to ease up on asbestos regulation.

The USA’s EPA has recently enacted the Significant New Use Rule. This rule allows the government to evaluate asbestos use on a case by case basis. Unfortunately the new rule does not include the evaluation of exposure to asbestos in the air, ground or water. Asbestos has never been banned in the USA, however, it is tightly controlled.
