Politics over Principle

Showing once again they are more concerned with their own election than the health of Americans, the attorney generals of nine states (New Jersey, New Hampshire, California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York and Vermont) sued EPA over the Bush Administration's historic decision to finally regulate emissions of mercury from coal fired power plants after the Clinton Administration spent 8 years ignoring the issue.

The result of this lawsuit, of course, will be to delay for years the effective implementation of this rule - putting at risk (if you are so inclined to believe the bogus science underlying this rule - which I do not) the neaurological development of an entire generation.
