Senator Cornyn: EPA's Decision Shows Reckless Disregard
by John Cornyn on June 30, 2010 at 4:21 PM
Following the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) final disapproval of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's (TCEQ) flexible permit program today, I released the following statement:
The Obama Administration keeps digging themselves a deeper hole when it comes to this economic recession. Instead of working with Texas to improve an existing successful program, they are burying the Texas economy with this EPA overreach. The EPA's decision shows reckless disregard for Texas' strong record of reduced emissions and improved air quality, while creating economic uncertainty for Texas industries and the workers they employ.
