Schimel Sues EPA. Good!

What took you so long, Brad?

Wisconsin has joined eight other states in filing a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for what they claim unlawfully expands the federal government's regulatory reach over local streams, lands and farms. Attorney General Brad Schimel says the rule, known as the 'Waters of the United States,' would extend the EPA and Corps of Engineers' regulatory reach to an untold number of small bodies of water, including roadside ditches and short-lived streams or any other area where the agencies believe water may flow once every hundred years.
Schimel says the rule could have dire consequences for homeowners, farmers and other entities by forcing them to navigate a complex federal bureaucracy and obtain costly permits in order to perform everyday tasks like digging ditches, building fences or spraying fertilizers.

While you're at it, sue EPA for its ridiculous--and extremely costly--automobile emissions standards.  If your car fails, you MUST spend up to EIGHT HUNDRED FIFTY-FIVE bucks to fix it before you can obtain a waiver.

Yah.  Low-income folks have that laying around in the couch cushions, right?
