E-M:/ That's outrageous, DEQ!

Enviro-Mich message from Patrick Diehl <patmec@voyager.net>

The Michigan Environmental Council (MEC) has learned that the following
work priorities were recently established for DEQ Air Quality Division
district staff.  These priorities are ranked as follows:

1.  Renewed operating permits (ROPs)
2.  Emission inventory
3.  Inspections
4.  Tax exemption applications
5.  Complaints
6.  Enforcement

It is almost incomprehensible that DEQ employees are now expected to
emphasize permit renewals and the processing of tax exemption applications
over citizen complaints and standards enforcement.
