The EPA’s Unchecked Agenda

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the leading bad actor in what American Enterprise Institute (AEI) Scholar, Benjamin Zycher, calls the, “metastasis of the executive branch.”

Zycher, and other policy experts, say that the agency is accelerating a power grab through an aggressive regulatory agenda with dubious or scant benefits to the environment.

Governor Tom Corbett’s energy plan is once again making Pennsylvania an attractive place to do business. His “Energy=Jobs” plan combines the use of our vast energy resources with a favorable political climate that reinforces a surging trend of attracting businesses from all over the world.

The power behind the plan lies in proper government restraint.  Governor Corbett believes that the market, given appropriate environmental safeguards, best decides in what proportion our energy resources are developed and used. He fittingly calls it his "all of the above and below" energy plan.
