Virginia leadership challenging EPA…again


And it may be a foreshadowing of more to come.

Earlier this year, Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli, II, filed a suit against the EPA calling into question certain data upon which some global warming regulations were based.

At a press conference yesterday, two Virginia legislators, state senator Ryan T. McDougle (R-Hanover), and delegate Timothy D. Hugo (R-Fairfax) called into question EPA data related to percentage increases in impervious surface areas.
