Outspoken California senator, Barbara Boxer, had a memorable visit to the NewsHour yesterday, supporting California's right to regulate tail pipe emissions. In the highlights clip above which, you can see choice lines like "the cheese stands alone" and the mention of a Washington Post article that says the entire EPA staff told EPA head Stephen Johnson to allow the waiver. Here is a quote from that Washington Post article:
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Stephen L. Johnson yesterday denied California's petition to limit greenhouse gas emissions from cars and trucks, overruling the unanimous recommendation of the agency's legal and technical staffs.
The Governator says he "will sue to overturn this ruling as quickly as possible." Rep. Waxman has started an investigation and more lawsuits and investigations are widely expected. This isn't over.
