Obama Administration pushes last-minute environment regulations

Hosted by ,

President Obama is taking advantage of these last weeks of his administration  to shore up his legacy on the environment. On Monday the administration finalized a rule that holds coal companies to a strict standard of restoring  land to its original condition before digging began. Tuesday the President announced a permanent ban on new offshore drilling in parts of the Arctic Ocean and off the Atlantic Coast. But will these new protections survive in a Trump White House? Guest host Barbara Bogaev gets insight from Nick Juliano, Deputy Energy Editor at Politico.
