Republicans said that during closed-door discussions this week about what to include in upcoming legislation renewing federal borrowing authority, options have included blocking administration plans to curb coal ash pollution; forcing civil servants to contribute more to their retirement plans; and requiring Congress to approve many major regulations.

BTW Jim thanks for jumping in with the much needed increase in activism postings recently. A few weeks ago I was wondering where the news was, and thought about posting the question, and perhaps starting to post again myself, but obviously you saw the dilemma. FR was becoming a social site.

I appreciate FR for what it’s intended to be. Thanks again.
