I’d have to study the law to be sure, but I bet there’s a legal waiver process in it. In other words, Congress probably wanted the EPA to have discretion so that true hardship cases and emergencies could be dealt with. Nothing really prevents the executive branch from using such waivers to reward friends and punish foes. That’s a big problem. The laws were written for presidents who would use their powers judiciously, but as we’ve seen, the current administration uses them to punish political foes, even entire states (Texas), and it’s entirely legal.
Citi “Congress probably wanted the EPA to have discretion.”
Rab may be willing to also wager that EPA could care less about what the Cong wanted. Running for the moment sorta on what O team staggers around with.
O is losing it. Keep an eye on the prize. In the interim, let the folks eat cake.
Stroke of the pen
Thanks for the comeback. Rab
