E-M:/ Senator Levin/Regulatory Reform

The following item appeared in the Sierra Club
national War On the Environment report this morning:

 Senate Governmental Affairst Chair Fred Thompson R-TN said that he is 
 optomistic he can cut a deal with Sen. Carl Levin D-MI on a reg reform 
 bill.  He also said that he would include a "judicial review" provision in 
 the bill that would allow industry lawyers to sue EPA if they disagree 
 with the cost-benefit analysis.  In other words, this bill would mean more 
 money for lawyers, more pollution for the rest of us.....
