"As with any change in leadership you can expect a change in approach, and in this case a change in tone as well", Konkus said.

The glider truck concept began so the engines of relatively new trucks that had been involved in accidents could be transferred to new truck bodies.

Fitzgerald made about 3,000 of these trucks in 2017, a production rate that it will now be allowed to return to.

Glider production had increased from 1,000 in 2010 to 10,000 in 2015, and Obama's EPA estimated that if those trends continued, the trucks would account for half of all truck-caused nitrogen oxide pollution by 2030.

The agency, she said, is also considering formally delaying the 300-unit cap until December 2019 - by which point it hopes to have permanently repealed the cap.

George Clooney Injured in Italy Car Crash

The Nebraska Sierra Club is among the environmental groups that welcomed the resignation.

Pruitt helped decrease red tape that had previously harmed Nebraska farms and businesses, Gov. Pete Ricketts said in a statement.

David Corbin, chairman of the organization's Nebraska chapter, said regulations meant to protect the environment, such as the Clean Air and Clean Water acts, were damaged under Pruitt's time at the EPA. News of the enforcement loophole was broken by The New York Times one day after theresignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt on July 5. But that move came only after Fitzgerald donated tens of thousands of dollars to Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., who is a candidate for governor there, and who asked Pruitt to reverse the rule.

Some critics opposed Pruitt's confirmation for his positions on climate change, but he received support from many Southern Baptist leaders, including SBTS President Albert Mohler; Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission; Anthony Jordan, former executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma; and Sen.

Now, President Donald Trump has the chance to nominate someone ethically upstanding to run the EPA into irrelevance.
