GOP rep introduces bill to gut EPA

GOP rep introduces bill to gut EPA | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
A House Republican wants to cut 13 programs at the Environmental Protection Agency.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

nOK,  does anyone really want this to happen? The GOP "Act to create a even dirtier world"...literally! Sometimes you really have to wonder if the people that think a healthy environment is a bad thing have already inhaled to many mind altering chemicals.


Excerpt:

The measure would force the EPA to close all of its field offices, sell or lease certain properties, cut various climate change programs and stop its environmental justice activities.

It would also stop the EPA from regulating ground-level ozone and from limiting the greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles and power plants, the subject of the most controversial EPA programs recently.
