Who will Reform the Clean Air Act?

November 15, 2013

 —–“The Clean Air Act is complicated, poorly written and rife with contradictions. The only certainty is that if a specific regulation doesn’t make sense, then you probably understand it correctly.” ——-Robynn Andracsek, Burns & McDonnell

Clean Air Act ReformWho is going to simplify the Clean Air Act?  What do we do at our home or job if something needs to be done?  Wait for someone else to do it?

It is not our job to modernize the Clean Air Act.  We even lack the power, resources, and authority to do this work.  The fact though is that it usually is the poor and the weak—and the people whose responsibility it isn’t—who we rely upon to get things done in this country.  It’s just a fact.  Always has been.

 —“If you’re in trouble, or hurt or need—go to the poor people.  They’re the only ones that’ll help—the only ones.—John Steinbeck

And just like the guy that mowed the lawn at the Lincoln Memorial with a push-mower during the government shutdown—doing something that’s not your responsibility and way over your head can have an incredible effect on the people whose responsibility it is.

The world is changing.  We must change with it.  Time to transform the SIP process.  We can make it happen.
