PRA Supports the Barrasso-Heller Amendment to the Energy and Water Minibus
Monday, November 14, 2011 4:00 pm | By J. Michael Wahlen

Today, PRA released a Legislative Alert in support of the Barrasso-Heller Amendment. This Amendment seeks to stop the “Guidance” issued by the EPA to expand the Clean Water Act (CWA).

The new Guidance would significantly expand the type and amount of waterways the federal government could regulate. Under the new interpretation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers could regulate not just all navigable waterways, but interstate, intrastate and even non-navigable ones as well.

This jurisdiction clearly goes beyond the original intent of the CWA and greatly expands the power of the federal government. The Barrasso-Heller Amendment eliminates this Guidance by clearly defining and limiting the types of waterways the federal government can regulate. This Amendment ultimately prevents property rights from ceding away from private citizens to the EPA.

As the Alert notes:

[These powers] were limited in the past by two U.S. Supreme Court cases which clarified the scope of federal jurisdiction over wetlands and other "waters of the United States" under the Clean Water Act. The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (2001) and Rapanos v. U.S. (2006) have significantly reduced the potential for abuse under the Clean Water Act, by limiting the previously broad definition of navigable water.

Unfortunately, the new Guidance seeks to subvert the court’s ruling, ceding power back to the federal government from the landowner. The Barrasso-Heller Amendment prevents this expansion of government power by clearly defining and limiting the waterways which the federal government can regulate.

The full text of the Legislative Alert can be found here.

I have decided to get the rest of my Bachelor's dreege from an online institution as in this day and age it really doesn't matter how you get that dreege unless it's from Yale, Harvard, or one of the top 10 traditional schoos. I have considered University of Phoenix, but I heard their tuition goes up? I have also considered Kaplan and Jones university but can't find enough feedback on them. AIU has been on probation for the last 2 years so they are not an option. Please help if you have any feedback regarding any online institution or suggestions for research.

My washing mahince takes in hot water and cold water, whereas my dishwasher takes in cold water and heats it up to the required temperature. Since I have a temperamental hot water supply this sometimes means my clothes are washed in cold water. Does such a thing exist as a washing mahince that takes in cold water and heats it up itself to the required temperature? Please don't just say get your hot water fixed'. I really want to know about washing mahinces makes and models would be fab!I'm in UK and have always bought second hand mahinces http://gttbtgxnin.com [url=http://rsthsr.com]rsthsr[/url] [link=http://civyuj.com]civyuj[/link]

In my biology class we need to write a reropt about the effects of extreme temperatures are on a cell membrane. To simulate this we put a mix of corn syrup and water in a plastic like material to make a tube (to simulate a membrane) . After putting the tube in very hot water (75 C) and cold water (5 C) The tube's volume got bigger, as well as the mass.Could someone help me to explain how this happened please?

All applicants may smubit original or documented work. The two required assignments should be smubitted in the original format. A portfolio may contain a combination of original and documented work. Does original format mean give them the actual piece, or does it mean if you put it on a CD for smubittion, you can't enhance it, like use Photoshop to brighten it, etc.And does documentation mean putting it on a CD or slide or other form of electronic smubittion ? http://nycvoit.com [url=http://hmcnqznv.com]hmcnqznv[/url] [link=http://qhyiwesf.com]qhyiwesf[/link]
