Pearce: EPA Out of Control, Administrator Resignation a Good Start

WASHINGTON, DC— EPA Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz resigned Monday, after a video surfaced in which Mr. Armendariz says the administration should “crucify” lawbreaking oil and gas companies in order to set an example for others.

Congressional Western Caucus Chairman Congressman Steve Pearce (R-NM) released the following statement in response to the resignation:

“Mr. Armendariz’s comments only magnified the EPA’s tyrannical environmental policies, exposing President Obama’s true energy agenda. President Obama claims to be in support of an “all-of-the-above” approach to our nation’s energy independence, including supporting American oil and gas to spur economic growth and create jobs. However, using scare tactics to deter companies from doing business in America is not a policy our administration should be standing for.

“This incident gives a glimpse into the culture President Obama has created within the EPA and the rest of his Administration, and it is not one that is representative of America or the way we do business. While Mr. Armendariz is now gone, there are no doubt many more officials who are also guilty of promoting practices that stand in the way of American energy production, job creation and ultimately, our economic recovery.”

Senator Johanns e-Update

May 1, 2012

One of the first things Iíll be doing when the Senate reconvenes next week is sponsoring legislation introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). This legislation, S. 2226, would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from sending your tax dollars to other countries for environmental projects under Section 103 of the Clean Air Act.

With our national debt rapidly approaching $16 trillion, this type of grant program hardly seems like a responsible stewardship of your tax dollars. Since the Presidentís so-called stimulus program was signed into law in 2009, the House Energy and Commerce Committee estimates that approximately $27 million has been handed out for overseas air pollution projects Ė as you know, every penny of that money comes from your taxes or is borrowed from other countries.

Examples of these EPA grants include more than $700,000 to China for emissions reductions and $1.2 million for the United Nations to help developing countries increase their use of alternative vehicles and fuels. Thailand received $700,000 to install equipment at a swine farm to recover methane gas. These are just a few examples, and unfortunately, they all smell about as bad as that pig farm.

This bill is currently before one of the committees I sit on. Iím going to work to make sure it comes up for a vote and hopefully becomes law. Itís the kind of common-sense legislation that we need more of in Washington.

A perfect example of how broken the EPA is.

EPA Resignation Signals Change

Dear Trail Voter,

As off-roaders know, the EPA is often at the heart of land closures based on overregulation and abuse of the Endangered Species Act and other such laws.

TPAC believes the following story about the recent resignation of a top EPA official is a signal that the regulatory tide may be changing.

Article on EPA Official Resigning

This story codifies TPAC's goal to help elect pro-EPA reform and pro-trail candidates to the U.S. Congress with a special focus on 7-8 key senate races. TPAC is already supporting such candidates in MT, NV, and VA.

TPAC needs your continued support so we can weigh into other important races in AZ, NM, MI, WI, and UT.

Donate $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 today

Thanks for being engaged on this election cycle.
