Finally, the Supremes wake up:
The Supreme Court on Thursday slashed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulatory control over water bodies in a win for conservative critics who argued the agency wielded too much power.
The court ruled that the 1972 Clean Water Act, which allows the EPA to regulate wetlands, only applies to wetlands that are obviously connected to larger regulated water bodies.
Now go and read the details of the case, because if ever there was an example of gross bureaucratic overreach, this would be it.
And I’m glad that the USSC (for once) did the right thing, instead of punting or letting the gummint get away with this. Otherwise:
(I know, “Where are the tar and feathers?” but go with me…)
