EPA denials ring hollow

October 01, 2011 J

Last week I posted here on the AFP blog about EPA's admission that it would need 230,000 additional bureaucrats at an annual cost of $21 billion to process permits related to its greenhouse gas regulations.

After the Daily Caller reported on the same story, it gained so much attention that EPA went into damage-control mode. Politico ran a piece today trying to spin away the shocking story.

But the story is valid.

The regulation at issue is called the Tailoring Rule, which is EPA's unlawful attempt to act as a super-legislature, rewriting the permitting threshold to shoehorn greenhouse gases into the Clean Air Act. But the law says what it says.

After Tuesday’s final wave of investments, total funds distributed reached a mere $4 billion (just 13 percent of the funds set aside), with investments in only 332 banks across the country – yet another example of underwhelming participation in the government’s “main street” financial interventions.
