Not since Reagan appointed James Watt and Anne Gorsuch to implement his reactionary agenda to openly undermine the nation's environmental laws has America's conservation heritage been under such concerted attack. While George W. Bush has attempted to keep his real plans in the backroom out of public view, his appointee's deregulatory agenda has become increasingly apparent. After nearly 30 years of using national standards in order to prevent a state by state race to the bottom, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now proposing to deregulate minimum federal criteria for permitting municipal landfills.
