Quayle environment bill OK'd
USA Today : July 26, 2012

  Summary:  The U.S. House passed a bill last week, designed to make it easier for presidents to override environmental regulations set by their predecessors and allow industry polluters to intervene in environmental settlements reached in court. The legislation was proposed by Rep. Ben Quayle, R-Ariz., as part of a massive anti-regulatory force driven by Republicans, in response to the EPA’s regulations requiring Arizona and other states to reduce air pollution that creates haze in national parks and wilderness areas.

Environmental groups strongly oppose the bill and warn that this effort by Republicans to save money and help their industry allies will undermine critical environmental and health protections. "This is not only a public threat, it's a giveaway to polluters and others who break the law," said Joan Mulhern, legislative counsel for Earthjustice.
