Obama Administration pushes last-minute environment regulations

Hosted by and

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.
