New Source Review


So much for extremist Bush appointees.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals has just rejected another of the New Source Review enforcement actions that the Clinton EPA filed against utilities across the country. What is especially sweet this time (especially as the enviros keep wasting time claiming its only Republicans who oppose the Clinton policy) is that the decision makes the same argument free market advocates and President Bush have been saying all along - you can't change the definition of what is a modification 20 years later and then expect to fine people for actions which were legal when undertaken but which your new definition makes illegal.

You would have thought the ACLU wing of the Democratic Party would have screamed outrage - but I guess the enviro scare fundraising industry just gives 'em too much hush money.
