Eliminate the EPA
Allow individual states to regulate their own environmental issues.
On all environmental issues having an impact on an area greater than one state:
Congress should initiate and approve each and every environmental regulation.
Congress should require a cost benefit analysis of each and every environmental regulation
Congress should properly compensate property owners for loss of property use.
Congress should eliminate all laws relating to global warming due to unproven science.
The federal government should properly manage and protect our national forests
No Cost Benefit Analysis here . . .
“The EPA’s regulatory process today is a closed loop. The agency funds the scientific research it uses to support its regulations, and it picks the supposedly independent (but usually agency-funded scientists to review it. When the regulations are challenged, the courts defer to the agency on scientific issues. But the agency refuses to make public the scientific research it uses.”
Texas Congressman Lamar Smith in Wall Street Journal
