Congress Could Settle A Dozen Texas Lawsuits

By Robert Wood, NewsRadio 1080 KRLD

AUSTIN (KRLD) – The Attorney General says Congress may hold the key to getting Texas and the EPA out of court.

The U.S. House of Representatives could consider a bill that could take back the power to control green house gasses from the EPA.

Attorney General Greg Abbott says that would have an effect on the state’s court action against the EPA over that very issue. “We have now about a dozen lawsuits and all of these lawsuits can be resolved, settled and dismissed, if the United States Congress passes these laws.”

Abbott says Congress and not the EPA should decide when and how and in what way green house gasses should be regulated.

    That’s an excellent idea: we’ll let all of the brilliant biologists, chemists, and other scientists that make up the US Congress make decisions about green house gases since they’re experts and totally qualified and have no financial stake in loosening restrictions whatsoever. Greg Abbott’s ideas are often ridiculous; this is one of many.

    The EPA has decided to regulate dairy farmers because milk contains ‘oil’. All dairy farmers and handlers must now submit plans for spillage control and cleanup ,etc. They are being treated the same as petroleum oil companies. Technically if you spill milk at home you have to call hazmat, by EPA regulation.

    I trust the EPA a lot more than I trust the liars in Congress.
