Breathing easier

This is good news. A federal appeals court on Tuesday thwarted the EPA's latest scheme to eviscerate existing clean air regulations, known around here as the Bush administration's Polluter's Protection Act. As you might know, the EPA was trying to squash state's rights to issue stricter regulatory control on industrial pollutants than the now ineffectual federal agency required.

Good for the court for putting the kibosh on that scam. We'll all be able to breathe easier now.
