Enlibra - More Regulation Than Enforcement

USEPA head bureaucrat Mike Leavitt gave his first speech yesterday.

Heavy on regulations, snappy titles for new programs (Enlibra), and light on enforcement. In fact, Leavitt said, "What about enforcement? I want our first goal to be compliance." Good news for business, bad news for environmentalists.

Leavitt explained Enlibra this way, "I subscribe to an environmental philosophy called Enlibra. It’s a Latin derivative meaning “to move toward balance.” Read compromise.

No judgments here, it's a wait and see attitude.
