It has been a busy few months of cutting costs, stifling regulations, 
and limiting government's reach for President Bush and his business 
allies.  For conservation advocates working at the state level, 
though, the president's campaign to reverse sound environmental 
policy is all too familiar.  The early forays by the White House to 
undermine popular safeguards are part of a proven strategic plan, 
tested and perfected in GOP-dominated states in the 1990s, writes 
Keith Schneider in Grist.  And no state, arguably, has been a more 
important testing ground for the GOP's efforts to turn environmental 
programs into mush than Michigan.  Read more on the Grist Magazine 
website.
