EPA shows arrogance

June 6, 2012

Breathtaking arrogance was demonstrated by Environmental Protection Agency officials last week during a congressional hearing on what we would consider an abuse of power by the agency.

Early in President Barack Obama's administration, the EPA retroactively rejected a permit for a surface mine in West Virginia. The permit had been approved previously.

A federal judge already has condemned the EPA's job-killing action.

Last week, a House of Representatives subcommittee held a hearing on the matter.

No one from the EPA attended.

U.S. Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., accused the EPA of failing to participate because officials were afraid their action "won't stand up to scrutiny."

It won't.
