Bill Limiting State Environmental Regulation Going Forward

Efforts are underway in Indiana to limit environmental regulation using the argument of protecting businesses and jobs. The rationale is that we should not impose additional “hurdles” to businesses by imposing stricter state standards. What is curious about the approach of imposing the limitation is that raising the bar in our state would require consensus to do so anyway – so why “tie our hands”?
