      That’s H. R. 861. Not the title of H. R. 861, it’s the whole bill.

      The Environmental Protection Agency shall terminate on December 31, 2018.

      The bill, introduced by Florida Republican Matt Gaetz and co-sponsored by Kentucky’s Thomas Massie, Mississippi’s Steven Palazzo, and Georgia’s Barry Loudermilk doesn’t bother with anything like wondering what happens to the data the agency collects, or the enforcement the agency carries out.

      It doesn’t sweat the details of employees or contracts. There’s nothing about what happens to the Clean Air Act, or the Clean Water Act, or the Endangered Species Act, or … anything at all.

      Just ‘terminated.’

      Of course, Republicans already have an alternative means of destroying the EPA in place.

      Under Scott Pruitt, the plan is already underway to subvert and pervert the agency’s mission, to make sure it is critically understaffed, to turn it into a prime example of a non-functional bureaucracy.

      So it’s likely that Gaetz’s bill won’t get the support it needs. This time.

          The folks that work for the EPA just like FDA and all that actually are hired because they care about folks health. I don't know about anyone else but the closer I get to the top the more bloodthirsty and dishonest they are.
