From Banking To Mining, Trump Rolls Back Obama-Era Regulations

President Trump signed an executive action on Friday to dismantle parts of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial regulations put in place to prevent another financial crisis. Another roll-back targets a rule that requires financial advisers who oversee more $3 trillion in assets to act in the best interest of their clients. On Thursday, the Senate voted to repeal a rule preventing coal companies from dumping mining waste into streams.
