An article in today’s Statesmen provides a clue as to why Texas suffers from so much pollution.
Revolving door at Texas environmental agency?
Some worry that many top officials leave to go to work with companies they once regulated.
In a Nut Shell, here’s how it works.
1. Taxpayer Handouts
2. Record Profits
4. Campaign Contributions
5. Super Bowl Tickets/gifts
6. Job promises
7. Industry favorable legislation
8. Protection from regulation
9. Lobbyists and more lobbyists
This is why we need environmental agencies like OGAP. Give generously!
This is why we need whistle blowers and activists like Don Young and “Far-left Radicals” like me.
