New Report Reveals Significant Increase in EPA Actions Under the Obama Administration

June 26, 2013

CEI notes a report by AEI describing substantial increase in the power of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Obama Administration, which has cost states billions of dollars in compliance fees and millions of jobs lost.  The report notes in part that, 

“Congress intended for EPA and states to work together to solve the country’s environmental problems. Since 2009, however, EPA has centralized a great deal of environmental policymaking. Even worse, the agency has found a method, known as sue and settle, to effectively replace states with environmentalist special interests in the regulatory process.”
