This forces any American business to confess they pollute by the standards fabricated by the EPA. That establishes criteria for the EPA to fine the American companies whom have responded as required by that government entity.
As the Leftist government uses our money to our demise as citizens, eliminate our freedoms, etc. the Left is using similar skullduggery to entrap our American entrepreneurs.
