That's insane. Of course we should have an agency looking to protect our environment, the air we breathe, water we drink - for future generations. And these are our communal lands, waterways, standards of safety and stewardship- it's not acceptable to leave regulation to states or abandon it wholesale. Shortsighted deregulation in the service of businesses and profit would be more expensive in so many ways long term. Thank you Molly, your words are perfect!
