EPA VS. Texas Round Two

The fight between Texas and the Environmental Protection Agency may just be getting started.  The EPA is rolling out new rules that it wants state’s to implement to limit carbon emissions from new and expanded industrial and power plants.  Public Citizen’s Andy Wilson says the state is already fighting EPA over one air permitting program and “that adds possibly more fuel on that political fight.”  Wilson says it’s possible if the state chooses not to act that the EPA will simply impose new rules on the state and he says we all know how popular that will be with the Governor and other state officials.
