Bankrupting Kansas

Kansas anger over EPA

Kansas legislators opposed to regulating greenhouse gases are doubly upset because the federal government is forcing the state into limiting emissions, and they don’t yet see a good strategy for preventing it. Some members of a legislative committee reviewing new rules from the federal Environmental Protection Agency argued last week that regulating greenhouse gases will hurt the economy. The committee had a hearing to allow regional EPA officials to explain the changes but used the meeting to vent their frustrations.

Rep. Carl Dean Holmes, a Republican from Liberal who’s long been influential in energy debates, suggested President Barack Obama’s administration of deliberately trying to raise energy prices and export manufacturing jobs overseas.

    Can’t prove this is valid, but apparently, Texas took a slightly different approach.

    Rep. Holmes is correct. It is refreshing to hear a politician speak the truth.
