Clean air equals tropically stormy weather; Immigration bill includes stuff that looks and smells like earmarks

July 2nd, 2013 by Steven Gardner

Once again I’m going to refer you to two of today’s stories from the Washington Post. Pretty soon you’re going to need a subscription.

The first story details how the Clean Air Act, which has been effective at actually doing what the title suggests, has also probably led to an increase of tropical storms in the North Atlantic.

The second story is about how the Senate immigration bill has language in it calling for spending on specific products, such as Northrop Grumman radar systems and Sikorsky helicopters. This, in case you thought earmarking went away.
