Polluters to clean up under Bush

Clinton brought a lawsuit against Duke Power Company for contravening the US Clean Air Act. Bush has quietly dropped it. It is a pattern that reverses previous gains and sets polluters up to pay no heed to breaking the law.
Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif claims ?The Bush EPA has been working overtime to change the underlying clean air rules and prevent such enforcement actions from being brought against dirty power plants in the future."
Power corrupts, dirty power corrupts absolutely.
