A new study by Jay Lehr of the Heartland Institute explains a five year plan that replaces the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a 50 state “Committee of the Whole” group of environmental agencies. The plan effectively replaces the EPA, a federal entity that has been known to over exert its power and abuse power.
- Net reduction in federal environmental spending of $6.2 billion a year.
- 15,000 EPA employees to 300 “Committee of the Whole” staff of six representatives from each state.
- $20 million to each state ($1 billion).
- Continued research and development at a national level ($1 billion).
Are you in favor of the EPA, or this new plan?
