The PowerLine Guys are catching up to MCT’s coverage of the EPA’s Plan EJ 2014

If you read the (always excellent) PowerLine blog yesterday, you would’ve read about the EPA’s push for ‘environmental justice’ and their so-called Plan EJ 2014:

From the public’s perspective, the hazard of what is an essentially extra-legal set of ideologically-driven policies is that the EPA may abuse its permitting powers by making demands on the companies it regulates that are not justified by any statute or regulation, but that are backed by the implicit threat that if the company fails to do the EPA’s bidding, it won’t get the permits it needs to operate.

Of course, if you are a regular reader of, you would’ve read about this nearly 1 1/2 years ago (July 31st, 2010 to be precise):

Going forward, the federal government is planning to use the regulatory power of the EPA to achieve economic redistribution in the name of Environmental Justice. The EPA is planning to use zoning laws, permits, psudo-science (global warming), regulations and through the creation of a phalanx of intergovernmental agencies that will place an emphasis on “environmental justice:”

It’s good to see the public at large catching on to the economic / legal threat posed by the radicals running wild at the EPA.

    The US is becoming a police state on so many levels. Between the DHS, the TSA, the EPA, the FDA, the FCC, FEMA, the NLRB ad, etc. there remains almost nothing we can do without getting some government agencies approval first.

      You are so right. There are layers and layers of regulations at the Federal level, then its repeated at the state levels.
