Good NYT Piece On Collapse of Clean Water Act Enfrocement

The same general dynamic can be seen in just about every aspect of federal enforcement. Indeed, during the Bush Administration, the Feds were active in preempting states that tried to move beyond federal rules or enforcement on a number of issues. But it is too simple to blame this on Bush. It is a natural outcome of a philosophy that maintains that government is incapable of playing a positive roll and that any unduly burdensome regulation (defined in terms of direct cost to industry incumbents) should be resisted.
