Raleigh, N.C. It took just 45 minutes Thursday morning for the Senate Commerce Committee to approve a massive rollback of rules and regulations meant to protect the state's environment.
Senate Bill 612 would require cities and counties to repeal any rules stricter than state or federal law. It would also require a list of environmental oversight boards and agencies to repeal or rewrite any state rule stricter than federal regulation on any given matter.
Those agencies include the Mining and Energy Commission, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Environmental Management Commission, the Commission for Public Health, the Pesticide Board and the Coastal Resources, Marine Fisheries, Wildlife Resources and Sedimentation Control commissions.
The bill would also do away with riparian buffers on private property throughout the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico river basins.

That moaning sound you hear is the puckering of numerous democrat and rino rectums. Rectum.. these bills will dang near kill them.. I will now duck for cover...
Amen brotha. (Or sista - whichever fits.) Here we go...
The state legislators are restoring property rights to the good citizens of North Carolina. Good for them. The next action should be throwing out the criminal Washington Fascist syndicate out of the state.
