The Regulated Get To Write The Regulations
Surprise, surprise. Once again, the language in EPA pollution regulations mirrors that found in industry memos. Julie Eilperin writes in The Washington Post:

Sen. James M. Jeffords (I-Vt.), ranking member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and one of the senators who called for the probe last spring, said the revelation that the EPA adopted the same wording as an industry source "no longer comes as much of a surprise."

"The Bush administration continues to let industry write the rules on pollution, and this is just one more example of how they abuse the public trust," he said.

Yes, it seems the fox has turned the henhouse into a condominium.
