Whither The Clean Air Act?
"The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issues a ruling this week allowing thousands of power plants, refineries, and industrial facilities to upgrade without reducing the pollution they emit... Meanwhile, the General Accounting Office (GAO) reported this week that the EPA had relied on industrial "anecdotes" to determine that weakening pollution rules would have minimal health and economic impacts. "Because the information is anecdotal, EPA's findings do not necessarily represent the program's effects across the industries subject to the program," the GAO reports."
