Bush launches last-minute deregulation push




The White House is working to enact a wide array of federal regulations, many of which would weaken government rules aimed at protecting consumers and the environment, before President Bush leaves office in January.

The new rules would be among the most controversial deregulatory steps of the Bush era and could be difficult for his successor to undo. Some would ease or lift constraints on private industry, including power plants, mines and farms.

Those and other regulations would help clear obstacles to some commercial ocean-fishing activities, ease controls on emissions of pollutants that contribute to global warming, relax drinking-water standards and lift a key restriction on mountaintop coal mining.

But I thought the problem is with ordinary slobs like me who live to buy plastic widgets and are the ones falling down on the job by stubbornly refusing to compost our potato peelings? I'll have to think about that some more...


Which is why this initiative is such a fitting gesture of acknowledgement.

Staff need to be freed up to run the shredding machines between now and January.
