...Sen. Rob Portman shows that we are also headed over a steep “regulatory cliff” that could compound the damage.
And that's only the beginning!
EPA’s to-do list also includes a new rule that would increase energy costs by up to $4.5 billion. The rule targets equipment used by power plants to draw in water to prevent over-heating, a process that, according to Portman, is not harmful to human health or water quality. EPA’s own original estimate said that this rule would cost one dollar for every three cents saved.
Gotta save........FISH!! That's it!!! FISH!!! God only knows we're running out of them!!
...Department of Transportation is poised to issue a rule that will increase the costs of new cars and trucks by mandating expensive new technology. This rule would require that all cars and trucks be equipped with a rear-view camera and video display on the dashboard. Currently, this technology is available to consumers who desire it, and Portman says that 40 percent of new cars have it.
That will be around $300.00/copy.
