-The EPA will delay new radiation standards at nuclear power plants that it proposed back in February. The rules are being pushed back by another 60 days to give industry more time to comment on how the standards will impact their facilities. http://j.mp/1l6mHOb
But that won't stop the EPA from regulating oil and gas production on sovereign Indian reservations. The agency is looking for feedback on potentially controversial new emissions standards in Indian country.
The EPA says standards may be needed because of the growth in energy production on Indian reservations, but admitted there is a need to "balance tribes' inherent sovereignty" with public health concerns.
"EPA believes that managing emissions from existing oil and natural gas sources in Indian country would result in greater consistency with surrounding state requirements," the agency wrote. http://j.mp/1kyl7oh
-The FDA is looking for ways to combat deadly pathogens that it believes pose a threat to public health. The agency will release a list of 21 pathogens, and fast-track any antibacterial drugs that can treat these life-threatening infections. http://j.mp/1hbgvoA
-The USDA will introduce new Salmonella testing requirements for raw beef products that go into effect later this month. Salmonella is a type of bacterial food poisoning that is most often found in beef and poultry.

-The State Department will introduce a rule intended to make it easier for battered foreign women who have suffered from domestic violence by a U.S. citizen to get visas here. http://j.mp/1jRsaUd
BANK EXAMINATION: Regulators are preparing to take a hard look at the regulations facing banks, with an eye toward identifying those rules that could be outdated or overly burdensome, according to The Wall Street Journal. The financial sector has complained relentlessly about the onslaught of new restrictions imposed under the Dodd-Frank financial reform law, and the review is likely to be seen as a chance to trim away some of that red tape. http://j.mp/1jRDShT
NUKE REBUKE: A visibly irate Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) lashed out Wednesday at members of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, saying the agency has failed to do enough to stave off a disaster the likes of Fukushima or Chernobyl: http://j.mp/SuEKCL
OBAMA’S PEN is running out of ink. Or so says Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who touted the actions his agency is taking to further the president’s “year of action” push for income equality: http://j.mp/1hzFsdR
BREW-HAHA: Regulations dating back to Prohibition are unfairly burdening small craft beer makers according to a new study from the Mercatus Center. Craft brewers are hopping mad: http://j.mp/1kMpojs
COURT WATCH: As The Hill's Peter Schroeder reports, a federal appeals court is renewing the debate over whether Washington has pushed Wall Street hard enough in the wake of the financial crisis. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit said Wednesday that a $285 million settlement between the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Citigroup would have been sufficient, chastising a lower court for throwing out the settlement in 2011. http://j.mp/1hbwLWA
BY THE NUMBERS:
1.25 million: The amount, in dollars, that an automaker stands to lose from a one-hour disruption caused by extreme weather near a plant, according to the Business Forward report.
6.2: The percentage by which EPA estimates manufacturers’ energy costs will rise by the year 2020 under the proposed power plant rule, according to the same report.
41: The number of GOP senators who signed a letter asking Obama to withdraw the EPA’s proposed carbon regs.
Making up rules is a Democrat illness.
It should start by banning sodium fluoride from our drinking water.

Rhonda: This is as big as poisoning our food and water. This takes care of both. We inhale it into our lungs thus the drastic rise in dementia, copd. People boo hoo it but don't take time to look it up. We are not to breathe in nano particules of aluminum into our lungs. Heavy metal. Also some forms of barium is in that. So next time you see grids or an X in the sky and those trails don't go away, instead they spread and grow into one huge murky cloud with no rain, this is the answer. At sunset I see this stuff fall down to the ground. I stay inside during a heavy saturation.
I can't believe people don't notice these. They last for hours, they are distinctly identifiable from everyday dumping of jet fuel, and they are absolutely dousing Dayton, Ohio like they are trying to kill us as fast as possible. X's at 7 am, more in the evening. I have seen them all the way to Cincinatti from North Dayton, and they NEVER miss a day.
Jea9: This is all part of the plan. Look up the Georgia Guidestones, it is all laid out there. It was put there in 1980. One question to you. Why and how did Ohio re-elect Boehner? He is part of the plan. We want all long time politicians out of office. They are the ones helping the plan move along. Obama is the big leader in this. Please pick up the book "Rise of the New world Order, the culling of man. Everything in that book has come to past and is still to come. Surprising facts, including gmo foods, Floride, Vaccines, Voting machine fraud, Federal Reserve, Education control, oil control, Mainstream media coverage, Illegal immigration, IRS. I would love to be able to copy some pages here for all to read and then maybe people will buy this book. I just don't know how to start a blog.
We spent 14 days with out electric a few years ago after a ice storm brought down power lines in our area. After five days I began to enjoy the piece and quit, neighbors helped each other. the power companies should shut off the power for 3 days and give people a sample of Obama's plans. I can a sure you Obama will never be bothered with any power shortage or lack of fuel to fly to his next tee time.
