EPA Chief v. Entire Staff: The California Emissions Backstory

By |

The Los Angeles Times has a nice piece out today showing that EPA Chief Johnson overruled virtually his entire staff in rejecting California's bid to regulate Greenhouse emissions.

The ruling, the Times points out, came just days after Dick Cheney met with executives from the auto industry:

"California met every criteria on the merits" one top staffer told the Times. "The same criteria we have used for the last 40 years on all the other waivers."
