The Dallas Morning News gets tough with TCEQ!
EPA right to get tough with Texas
They even use one of my favorite terms:
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has long been a reliable protector of polluters.
The editorial also slaps down Rick Perry for his arrogance in appointing a global warming denier to head up TCEQ.
But Texas officials are unmoved. Gov. Rick Perry appears defiant, deeming intensified federal enforcement an overreach. And the TCEQ remains stacked with appointees who share the governor’s pro-business, let-the-environment-be-darned views. Larry Soward, the only commissioner to regularly take up the cause of environmental quality, recently retired, only to be replaced by a Perry-approved bureaucrat from within the TCEQ.
If the EPA thinks TCEQ is bad, They need to take a gander at the Texas Railroad Commission!
