    Hopefully their budget get cut they are out of control.

    Thomas Sowell




    You can't make up this sort of insanity, meanwhile they are dictating we put CFC bulbs in our houses which if they break contaminate the home with deadly mercury.


    Anyone think you home was a hazardous waste site when a child spills a glass of milk?

    extra special lulz at Sowell allegiance.

    he stopped being relevant the moment he compared Obama to Hitler, like so many other crazies before him.

    So it is a good idea for the EPA to force dairy farmers to have a hazardous waste plan for a milk spill?


    As to attacking Sowell, well that says a lot about the posters not much about Sowell.

    Honestagawd! EPA and getting out of Nam are the only things the neocon darling Nixon got right. The EPA and controls on industrial toxins saved this country's environment and their scientific enrichment has been incalculable.

    Yes. Their funding should be eliminated.

    What the hell are you people thinking??

    No, actually the question is how many other insane regulations are people claiming the EPA is putting out each day when, in truth, they are not?

    See Brandon's from link:


    They were planning to do it until 'caught'. How many more hair brained regs aren't caught?

    No, they weren't. They've planned to give them an exemption all along. See Darryl's link:

    A Wall Street Journal editorial two days later fanned the flames with what Detlefsen described as "some inaccuracies," including a contention that EPA was planning to apply SPCC rules to dairies, rather than grant an exemption.

    Besides, it isn't like this is something new - it began in the 70s and the "milk rule" was part of Bush's regime.

    But the back story behind the milk rule is more complicated, dating back to the implementation of Clean Water Act mandates for spill-response planning in the 1970s and flaring up under the George W. Bush administration's EPA, according to dairy industry officials. While milk producers are not declaring victory until EPA issues a final exemption for their businesses, the agency has fully excused dairies from the requirement to plan for spills on their property.

    Milk producers first became aware that SPCC regulations could hit their industry during the George W. Bush administration, when EPA raised a concern that the animal fat in milk might put it in the same category as oil, the dairy representatives recalled.

    Under existing law, Detlefsen explained, the concept of "what is oil was always sort of ambiguous. I don't mean to make a pun, but it was a slippery issue."

    Given that uncertainty, the dairy industry pressed for and won a proposed rule exempting milk storage and containers from the spill-planning rules. In an unfortunate twist of timing, however, the proposed rule was issued the week before Bush left office and became part of a broader freeze of pending regulations that typically occurs when a new administration takes over.
