6/2/2010 - Deer Park - Gov. Rick Perry today was joined by local government and business leaders to decry Washington's latest attempt to extend federal control over the state's authority, an action that would undermine Texas' successful clean air programs and cost the state thousands of jobs. Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its efforts to take over Texas' federally delegated, successful Title V permitting program and replace it with a less effective Washington-based, bureaucratic led, command and control mandate.
"Last week, the federal government sent the very clear message that it seeks to destroy Texas's successful clean air program and threaten tens of thousands of good Texas jobs in the process. The EPA seems to believe that federal controls and bureaucracy are more important than clean air results." Gov. Perry said. "Texas' common-sense approach to air quality permitting works because it avoids the damage caused by Washington's command and control approach, while cleaning the air, helping create jobs and growing our state economy."
