The EPA is one of the most abusive Organizations ever to be created by Congress. It’s senior management have engaged in practices that have shocked and offended the conscience of the nation on numerous occasions. The Courts have smacked EPA rulings around like they were red headed step children, and yet still the EPA continues to pursue it’s unconstitutional abuse of power. This latest abuse of authority displays only to clearly the need to eliminate the EPA as a federal bureaucracy.
Why is the EPA altering state boundaries in Wyoming – and reversing over 100 years of established law? Well, apparently the city of Riverton now falls under the jurisdiction of the Wind River Indian Reservation. This, obviously, isn’t sitting well with the governor’s office – which is urging the EPA to reconsider its ruling and respect the rule of law.
Reacting to the decision to reduce the size of Wyoming by about a million acres, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead warned of the dangers to all Americans of this type of unilateral land redistribution by the EPA:
“I understand that the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone Tribes have a different opinion about the Wind River Reservation Boundary. My deep concern is about an administrative agency of the federal government altering a state’s boundary and going against over 100 years of history and law.
“This should be a concern to all citizens because, if the EPA can unilaterally take land away from a state, where will it stop?” Governor Matt Mead said in a press release on January 6.
Somebody at the EPA seriously needs to go to prison over this, according to the United States Constitution, ONLY congress can alter the size of a State. It’s not a simple process, it requires 2/3rd consent of both the State in question and of Congress itself. The EPA’s over reach of Congressional authority here is nothing short of a criminal act.
