Rubber Stamping EPA Sue and Settle
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Assault on State Sovereignty, focuses specifically on the EPA’s usurpation of state authority on environmental protection
STATE SOVEREIGNTY BE DAMNED (IN ALL 50 STATES)
I wonder how “We the People” ever MANAGED before our WA State elected representatives
WERE REQUIRED BY FEDERAL LAW, TO RUBBER STAMP EPA FEDERAL SUE AND SETTLE AGREEMENTS?
IT’S A DIRTY FEDERAL JOB, BUT SOMEBODY’S AT THE STATE LEVEL HAS TO “WAC” IT!
So? OUR WA State elected representatives DELEGATED OUR CITIZEN’S POWERS to the APPOINTED WA State (DOE) Ecology under Title 173 WAC’s.
Of course, we MUST forgive our Elected WA State Representatives,
Because? Indeed, whether they admit it or not,
THEY HAVE NO CONTROL OVER ANY OF IT, THEY ARE JUST RUBBER STAMPING THE (EPA’S) FEDERAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION (AS A DIRECT RESULT OF A NUMBER OF LAWSUITS WITH ENVIRONMENTALISTS FILED) UNDER THE CLEAN WATER AND AIR ACT.
When did any State or Federal elected representative ever admit to, or say “I’m damn sorry about having to RUBBER STAMP this federal EPA unfunded Sue and Settle mandate.”
However, The mayor of Port Angeles WA Cheri Kidd, selected from among the city council members and served two years in the mostly-ceremonial post, did in fact object to Rep. Derek Kilmer about the EPA unfunded mandates that were bankrupting her city and the citizens of Port Angeles WA.
DID OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES, IN WA DC LAY DOWN THE LAW?
Importantly, these new rules ARE NOT THE OUTCOME OF LEGISLATION
or rigorous scientific findings,
BUT A DIRECT RESULT OF A NUMBER OF LAWSUITS WITH ENVIRONMENTALISTS
The agreements to regulate often DID NOT INCLUDE any meaningful opportunity for input from state and local entities

MUST WE THE PEOPLE forgive our ELECTED FEDERAL Representatives?
INDEED, WE MUST NOT FORGIVE OUR ELECTED FEDERAL Representatives
aka THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS.
