Access Denied: Federal Web Governance Under the Trump Administration

Access Denied: Federal Web Governance Under the Trump Administration examines the Trump administration’s management of federal websites related to environmental regulation and makes recommendations for the Biden administration moving forward. Currently, there are few policies governing website content. This report highlights the need to address these gaps. It’s the most comprehensive report yet from EDGI’s website monitoring program. Since Trump took office in January 2017, EDGI has documented more than 1,000 changes to date in the Federal Environmental Web Tracker.
