GOP: Republican-led House hazardous to our health

Re: “GOP bill would let Border Patrol ignore environmental laws” (TNT, 10-24) and “Proposed biomass regulations a threat to jobs, critics say” (TNT, 10-29).

These two stories connect the dysfunction of House Republicans’ attacks upon EPA rules and regulations with the potential impacts locally: degradation of public lands in Washington state and air-quality problems in Tacoma.

Regarding the biomass regulation, on a face mask I will write the word “pass” followed by the bill number and wear the mask around town. Not only good politics, but good for my health.
