Borellis Discuss Regulation on Liddy on Wednesday

Both Tom and Deneen Borelli will be guests of syndicated talk radio host G. Gordon Liddy on Wednesday, November 16.

Tom and Deneen — the director of the National Center’s Free Enterprise Project and a fellow with Project 21, respectively — are scheduled to be on between 11:30AM and 12:30PM eastern.

A recent Wall Street Journal editorial reports that a previously uncirculated draft report produced by the EPA indicates there are bureaucrats within the agency concerned that a proposed regulation “may detrimentally impact the reliability of the electric grid.”  Tom will discuss how this regulation and others, which are considered by many to be key weapons in the Obama Administration’s war on fossil fuels, pose a threat to both the financial well-being of poor Americans who are already having trouble paying their bills as well as put all Americans who rely chiefly on fossil fuels to keep them lit and warm at risk.

Deneen will discuss last week’s defeat of an attempt on Capitol Hill to repeal the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.  The repeal effort, spearheaded by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and seeking to use the Congressional Review Act to add congressional input to the imposition of the CSAPR, was stymied after several senators who were supported by the Tea Party movement or have sought the movement’s support voted against the resolution.  Allowing CSAPR to be enforced beginning on January 1, 2012, however, effectively gives the bureaucracy regulatory authority akin to Barack Obama’s “cap-and-trade” scheme that failed to pass the Senate during the last session of Congress.  Giving the bureaucracy such power via executive action is considered by so many members of the Tea Party movement to be unconstitutional.
