Texas to EPA: Drop Dead and/or FYNQ

A strongly-worded letter, but usually softly worded ones are sent.

The EPA is trying to backdoor cap and trade carbon restrictions via executive power since they don't have any, you know, actual constitutionally-promulgated legislative power to do so.

Texas' own board of environmental quality disputes they can do this -- and harshly.

"In order to deter challenges to your plan for centralized control of industrialized development through the issuance of permits for greenhouse gases, you have called upon each state to <>declare its allegiance to the Environmental Protection Agency's recently enacated greenhouse gas regulations -- regulations that are plainly contrary to United States law. ..... To encourage acquiesence with your unsupported findings you threaten to usurp state enforcment authority and to federalize the permitting program of any state that fails to pledge their fealty to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)."

I found the salutation/signoff a little aggressive, too:

But first, you will blow me,

Attorney General Greg Abbot
TECQ Chief Bryan Shaw

/enc

But I like that they added a personal touch.

Thanks to awkward davies and Herr Morgenholz.
