I smiled with pride today.  Texas took Obama’s EPA to court and cleaned their clocks.  A federal appeals court scolded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday for rejecting a series of state pollution control projects in Texas that federal regulators said failed to satisfy requirements of the Clean Air Act.

At issue are state permits that govern pollution control projects at coal plants and energy producers in Texas. The EPA must sign off on the permit standards, but Judge Jennifer Elrod condemned the agency for waiting four years before taking action. The statutory deadline is 18 months.  “Because the EPA waited until more than three years after the statutory deadline to act on Texas’s submission, we order the EPA to reconsider it expeditiously,” Elrod wrote.  Just another case of liberals attempting to ignore statuatory deadlines that are on the books because they feel they don’t apply to them.

Basically in the nutshell, Texas complied with the act and the EPA was too busy to either approve or disapprove the permit standards.  It falls under “If you snooze, you loose” category.  The EPA was too busy trying to figure out if they had the authority to impose crap and tax on us to look at the permit standards that Texas submitted.  Maybe next time the EPA will adhere to the Texas slogan…”Don’t Mess With Texas” or you will be publically embarassed.
