I think the current administration has been pretty clear. It has, virtually without exception, put incompetent criminals in charge of all agencies. They are all, right now, being investigated and the Dems are sure to go after them as well. The latest was the guy in charge of the Department of the Interior (Zinke) quit as soon as his investigation was announced. Sticking to their plan, get rid of any and all regulations this is just the latest.
Remember, good conservatives, hate ALL regulation. If it regulates, its bad, and should be shutdown or, preferably, looted for private and industrial gain first. Apparently Zinke has stuck to that plan like glue.
