"President Barack Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has moved aggressively to usurp policy making authority from the states. In West Virginia and Kentucky, for example, the EPA has effectively overhauled Clean Water Act (CAA) permitting regimes, in disregard of administrative procedure rules. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has sued the EPA six times over its decision to reject state’s 17-year old 'Flexible Permit' air quality permitting program for refineries." (10/26/11)
