Posted on 11/09/2011 8:43:27 PM PST by NormsRevenge
The California Air Resources Board is now being investigated by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
On Wednesday, the committee chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Temecula, sent Air Resources Board Chair Mary Nichols a 13-page letter advising her that he was "expanding" the committee's ongoing investigation into the establishment of fuel economy standards. ..
"Your refusal to subject yourself and your office to congressional scrutiny is emblematic of the core concern that many in Congress share...that CARB, as a state actor, is unresponsive to congressional concerns and unappreciative of congressional priorities," Issa wrote.

In the illustrious words of the former Gubinator..
Probe Probe Probe!!!
Go Issa Go!
Rep. Issa. When you probe CARB, use a red-hot poker. They are destroying the economy of California, hurting the truckers and small business owners, and driving the rest of the country crazy with their lunatic science and wet-dream standards.
As NormsRevenge wrote: PROBE, PROBE, PROBE, like a proctologist with a Jack Hammer.
Darrell Issa for president in 2012! Please nail this agency to the WALL!!!!!
Bump to that!
CARB is out to destroy what is left of California.
There have been allegations that CARB has used questionable science to justify their draconian rules. I hope ISSA puts enough investigators on this to expose any fraud. People need to go to jail if it can be proved. Hopefully, if there is a Republican President, and he appoints a bulldog AG, a lot of People will face indictments.
It sounds like Issa is the ONLY DAMNED REPUBLICAN DOING ANYTHING!
What gives? Is he the only one left with a spine?
It’s a good place to start then he can call up the Coastal Commission and then the Cal Water Resources Control Board and then...
It would be nice if Issa would finish one probe before starting another.
It’s time someone went to jail for Fast & Furious.
Just came back from the 405/605 Tea Party meeting tonite and CARB was the main topic in Warren Duff’s talk.
Filthy vermin are in desperate need of a proctological exam and a huge enema.
He has been an enemy of CARB for years.
CARB serves a very important function to ensure that our hair styling products do not contain more than 6% alcohol. They scour the retail shelves and run independent tests to save us from these life-on-earth threatening dangers.
I agree, I want to get some results.
Now this is exciting!
The Congress has no authority to investigate a state agency except.
Hopefully for once the commerce clause will be used to STOP runaway government.
I’m bald. What does CARB do for me?
Perhaps the investigation will yield some fruit. Sad that the US Congress has to do what the State most probably should be doing.
GO GET THEM REP. ISSA AND EXPOSE THEIR LIES !
As Mother Nature said to the tractor... Plow a little deeper, John Deere!!!
Thanks for the ping!
It’s about time but I won’t be holding my breath on anything coming of this.
Watch them suddenly discover the 10th amendment.
