Re: “Pollution rules might be delayed” (TNT, 3-2).

Please educate me. I don’t understand why stricter run-off rules for developments should cost cities and counties more money.

The developers should put in the required controls and infrastructure (roads, drainage lines, plantings, school requirements, etc.) as part of their developments, new or redos. If they don’t, these municipalities need to rewrite their rules. How much can that cost?
