"WASHINGTON - The Trump administration has instituted what it described as a
temporary media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred
staff from awarding any new contracts or grants, part of a broader
communications clampdown within the executive branch.

Emails sent to EPA staff since President Donald Trump's inauguration Friday
and reviewed by The Associated Press detailed specific prohibitions banning
press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency's social media accounts.

The Trump administration has also ordered what it called a temporary
suspension of all new business activities at the department, including
issuing task orders or work assignments to EPA contractors. The orders were
expected to have a significant and immediate impact on EPA activities
nationwide. . . . "
