Termination of the EPA – Issue of State Sovereignty?

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) introduced a bill on Feb. 3, 2017 titled H.R. 861 – To Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency.

Though the abolition of the EPA sounds like an evil scheme to get rid of any federal oversight in order to rape and pillage the American landscape in an attempt to extract its great riches, rest assured, it is. But, it has been cleverly disguised a states’ rights issue.

Book Review (Gr 1-3): The Camping Trip That Changed America: Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, and our National Parks

With the National Park Service being in the news lately for finding a way to tweet around President Trump’s recent gag order, and with H.R.621, the recently introduced bill to sell off federal lands, it was hard for me not to review the book: The Camping Trip That Changed America: Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, and our National Parks by Barb Rosenstock and illustrated by Mordicai Gerstein.
Aimed for 1st-3rd graders, this book tells the story of what inspired Theodore Roosevelt to protect America’s wilderness.
