E-M:/ Muskegon--Clean on smog??

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

In wednesday's federal register, EPA is
proposing to designate Michigan's smog
ground zero, Muskegon County, as an
"attainment area" for the old 1 hour standard,
which happens to be the only standard we
presently have thanks to Spence Abraham's
Federalist Society buddies on the DC Court
of Appeals.

EPA is proposing to make this designation of
dirty air as clean with a direct final rule
without public comment, saying....

"In the final rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is
approving the State's request as a direct final rule without prior
proposal because EPA views this action as noncontroversial and
anticipates no adverse comments."

....although anyone who makes a substantive comment can
kill this automatic action, but if they want to go to
court on this later, they'll have to lay out the whole case in the
comment.... by September 29.
