In bid to speed up EPA, Pruitt takes on entrenched air pollution system
from Houston Chronicle
Lining the 50-mile-long Houston Ship Channel is a network of chemical plants, oil refineries and other industrial facilities so vast that the city's business leaders like to refer to it as the "petrochemical capital of the world." But the area also has some of the worst air quality in the country, drawing tough federal regulations that slow the development of new industrial projects. Now, inside the Environmental Protection Agency, officials are working to find a way to speed and overhaul that process.
