You mean EPA regulations aren't always job-killers?

While reading about NIPSCO's plans to install "scrubbers" to its coal-fired generating stations to comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations (Sept. 19), I was surprised to hear them mention that this would create hundreds of additional construction jobs, cleaner air and economic development for the area. How can this possibly be true, when EPA regulations are always "job killers," according to the Republicans who are always trying to repeal them?

When even NIPSCO admits the absurdity of this right-wing propaganda, maybe it's time to accept the truth and start thinking -- and voting -- in terms of reality!
