Have you seen the property, Toyman. There is no doubt that it is a wetland.

The court ruled that there must be some way for someone to appeal the EPA ruling. The court did not say that they could fill in wetlands.

It seems rather pointless that these idiots are making such a mess when they know that they'd lose an appeal. They've caused a great waste of money.

This case demonstrates yet one more example of how the GOP/Bush administration used their preference for 'big government' to limit our freedoms. Congratulations to the Court for pointing-out the arrogance of President Bush.

Big government,yes.Funny you think there is a bit of difference between administrations.
Environmental issues should be decided within the respective states and not the hallowed halls of lala land.

Oh definitely. Because state government only has the best wishes for the freedoms of it citizens. This is Idaho. Two words: Transvaginal Ultrasounds.

If old Butch Otter (governor) figures he can make a buck with development...goodbye clean water and pristine lake.

Let us see who can determined exactly what the Court held in the majority opinon.
That they have the RIGHT to sue the EPA on their own time schedule, not the EPA's.

Another unanimous decision from SCOTUS on the obama admins constant overreach.
