Murray's Ideas to Bail Out His Industry Look Very Familiar

Coal magnate Bob Murray sent six sample executive orders to bail out the industry to Energy Secretary Rick Perry and EPA chief Scott Pruitt that contain concepts closely mirroring actions taken by the administration, according to new documents obtained by E&E News.

One of the draft orders, sent days before a meeting between Murray and Perry last March facilitated by now-EPA Deputy Administrator Andrew Wheeler, instructs President Trump to exit the Paris Agreement, while another orders the DOE to "issue an emergency directive" to study grid resiliency and halt power plant shutdowns for the duration of the two-year study.

Emails obtained by E&E also show efforts from utility FirstEnergy, which asked the administration in March to use emergency powers to bail out its struggling plants, to set up a meeting between Perry and its CEO last year.
