It's the Environment, Stupid.

Pollution control? Relax it.

News flash - Bush is still pushing to make it easer for polluting industires to do nothing. Of course it's not big news, or new news for that matter, but it did get an honorable mention in the national briefing section of the NYTimes today.

This administration just won't back off. They got some momentum going back in 2002, and 2003, and are trying yet again to let industry off the hook as far as pollution prevention and mitigation measures go - even though this past March, the courts struck down the latest proposal at easing regulations.

I wonder at what point legal fees surpass the cost of scrubbers?
