The subject bill was introduced into the house on 02/03/17 and bears watching. It most likely won't make it out of committee but you never know.

Title: "Democrats aren't worried about a GOP congressman's bill to abolish the EPA"

This is the most recent information I could find on this.

Anyway, I don't see it going away. Recall that Nixon was in office when it was started, though of course many things were a bit different in '70 and I don't just mean disco, and the following stagflation and oil crisis. At the very least, it's good PR to keep it going.

However, I do predict a reduction in regulatory authority and a shrinking of the agency. It's not really the "favored son" right now.
