EPA regulations battle surfacing
John Latta | April 29, 2011
It had to happen.
As EPA regulations continue to require industry to do more and change existing practices, the chafing had to eventually lead to some sort of outburst. And now it begins.
Now a group of the country’s top executives has petitioned the Administration to have EPA cease and desist its efforts to regulate greenhouse gases from industrial polluters. They want EPA to scrap its regulatory efforts aimed at power plants and oil refinineries, and to have Congress legislate our way to cleaner air.
There has been for time in Washington a feeling among many industrial leaders that EPA was regulating where Congress should have been legislating, and that regulations were avoiding the legislative process that is fairer and more constituionaly in order.
Look at Bloomberg’s report for the full story.
