Encourages Administration to Apply the Same Flexibility to Their Review of the Dust Standard

Mesa, Arizona – Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today applauded the Administration’s directive to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to withdraw the draft Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards.

“I hope EPA displays the same consideration of the economic impact when it comes to regulations dealing with dust, such as PM-10, especially when their own scientists say tightening the standard isn’t necessary,” said Flake.

    We’re really not interested in hearing about what Mr. Flake puts his hands together for. We’re interested in hearing from Mr. Flake about illegal immigration and illegal aliens. Why?

    Mr. Flake, along with liberal Democrat Congressman Luis Gutierrez of Chicago, co-authored the “STRIVE” Act of 2007. Mr. Flake’s legislation included not one, but three discrete amnesty programs.

    Perhaps the best known co-sponsor of Mr. Flake’s legislation was then U. S. Congressman Rahm Emanuel who went on to become White House Chief of Staff for B. Hussein Obama and who is currently the Mayor of Chicago.

    Another co-sponsor of Mr. Flake’s bill was the infamous Democrat U. S. Congressman from Arizona, Raul Grijalva, who called for a boycott of his own state, Arizona, in protest of SB1070.

    Others of the “Liberal Elite” backing Mr. Flake’s amnesty bill were Democrat Zoe Lofgren of California, the queen of amnesty, and that great champion of the left, Democrat John Conyers.

    Address the issue, Mr. Flake, because as long as you continue to put out press releases on everything but illegal immigration and illegal aliens, we’ll keep bringing your posts right back to that issue.
