It would appear that the EPA is exercising and expanding its jurisdiction to "Civil Rights" working in conjunction with the Office of Civil Rights and the Office of the General Counsel. I received this email correspondence and thought I should share it with you for your comments. Please be sure to send them also to the EPA link below.
Plan EJ 2014: Advancing EJ through Title VI of Civil Rights Draft Supplement Released - Comments Requested
Administrator Jackson has made improving EPA's civil rights program a priority. Complying with EPA's statutory civil rights obligations is a critical part of the Agency's efforts to advance environmental justice. As part of this effort, EPA is pursuing long overdue, vigorous, robust, and effective implementation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other nondiscrimination statutes.
The Office of Civil Rights (OCR), in consultation with the Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ) and the Office of General Counsel (OGC), have developed a draft implementation plan, "Advancing Environmental Justice through Title VI". The draft focuses on Title VI and its integration with Plan EJ 2014. The EPA is asking the public to comment on the draft supplement to Plan EJ 2014.
To view and provide comments on the draft supplemental, visit http://www.epa.gov/environmentaljustice/plan-ej/ today.
Comments are due no later than 11:59 p.m. Monday, June 19, 2012.
we need to take every law/rule/whatever that the epa has made since 1960 void , and start over with a little sense thrown in, just for a change . most of their crap since then has been a disaster
The EPA must be sunset and the states take back their rights to regulate their own property.
Environmental Justice this is b/s just like social justice. This is the EPA wanting to extends is hand in order to cut off yours. Under the Obama plan the EPA is locking this country up no gas, no oil, no energy via Obama directives. The EPA needs to be fired and never rehired again. I have never seen one agency so hell bent on pleasing the president. The constant need for new fuels yes a good idea but far from happening any time soon. The regulations are strangling all companies and forcing GREEN on this nation at a terribly high price which no one can afford. The EPA is public enemy number one next only to the government itself.
sharon, Do you mean the Extortionist Progressive Association (EPA) enemy #1.
