Frankly, people not obeying the laws does affect you and everybody else. If the authorities are witness to the lawlessness and turn a blind eye towards it because he is a nice guy or someone's friend as was suggested, you end up in a situation where the rule of law is meaningless. Its this PERCEPTION of the arbittrary/selective enforcement of the law that is at least partly at the heart of the…

Frankly, unless it affected me, I wouldn't care how big or how many garages he built and don't see the need to be searching public records and Google to find out what he's doing wrong. When does research become stalking?

House GOP appropriators plan to withhold funding to enforce greenhouse gas rules

House Republicans say they may try to block the EPA's proposed greenhouse-gas rule

From by DTN AgDay:

House Republicans say they may try to block the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed greenhouse-gas (GHG) rule for power plants by denying the funding to implement it, according to Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, a senior member of a House Appropriations Committee. Funding for EPA is included in the Interior-Environment appropriations bill which is being drafted by an Appropriations subcommittee.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., has pointed out that House Democrats will vote overwhelmingly to oppose GOP attempts to drop funding for the GHG rules. "The overwhelming majority of our party is going to support [funding the effort] and the Senate's not going to pass a repeal" of the regulation, he said. "Nor will the president sign it."

It is unlikely that Congress would be able to roll-back EPA's carbon emissions proposal. But it is highly likely that Republicans will construct a procedure that will require Democrats to go on the record as either opposing or supporting the new GHG rules. Such votes then could be used as ammunition in next November's mid-term elections.
