senate Bill S. 88

Clarifying the EPA's Role in Regulating Hazardous Chemical Facilities

Argument in favor

This bill amends vague legislative language while more fully defining the EPA's role in regulating chemical facilities.

First find out what the EPA has been doing so it can be chastised and stopped. Punish its most Bolshevik policy makers by blackballing them from transfer to other agencies. Then disband it entirely.

The EPA doesn't write laws! Congress should do their job.

Argument opposed

The bill waters down the already weak regulatory protections of hyper-dangerous industrial sites, potentially hurting public safety.

As someone who works in chemical manufacturing, I can assure you we already know what "extremely hazardous" means, because we take extraordinary steps to protect our employees from anything even remotely harmful. We don't need the additional definition; defense lawyers do.

Pretending that polluters don't know what they're doing is pathetic. Stop privatizing profit while socializing costs. If anything EPA should be strengthened.

This further limits the EPA's ability to regulate, in this case against dirty energy. The EPA is clearly pushing towards renewable, these energy company dinosaurs need to adapt or die. They are the reason we're still so energy dependent and they're bad for the environment.

    We need to dismantle the EPA. This,is an agency that has munch too much discretionary authority. Let the states regulate this, and slim down the FedGov.

    The EPA should be abolished this was a good idea until this government started using it as a tool to defend the political views of the government not it's people. It's like this no one in the EPA is elected and is giving the power to make laws therefore it is unconstitutional only congress can do this! But being the sheeple that we are congress has not the power or the right of delegation of constitutional duties that they were elected to oversee. This is the same thing they continue to do with other agencies such as the IRS,DHS,DOJ,FBI,TSA,CIA,NSA and FEDERAL RESERVE!

    Why would you want an agency that doesn't follow their own guidelines and who polluted an entire ecosystem be in charge of others? Doesn't make sense and only the federal government would allow this.

    EPA needs to be strengthen and given power to enforce, no watered down. How many tragedies do we need before we realize we need more regulation, not less.
