EPA, Sierra Club given too much power

Published: July 28, 2013

“Officials should continue fight against EPA decision” (Our Views, July 23), regarding the Environmental Protection Agency forcing regulations upon electric utilities, resulting in a 15 percent increase in electricity costs, is a reminder that such decisions should be reserved for lawmakers. Giving this much power to the EPA, the Sierra Club and other groups allowed to intervene in this case was a mistake.

Issues with impact this significant should be decided by elected officials.
