Op-ed: It’s just false to say environmental rules kill jobs 25.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Amid fierce debate, the federal Environmental Protection Agency strengthened national ozone pollution standards in 2015. The move was billed by industry as one of the most expensive environmental regulations ever proposed, while public health and environmental advocacy groups argued that the new standard of 70 parts per billion wasn’t protective enough of human health. EPA science advisors had advocated for a standard between 60 and 70 parts per billion, preferring the lower end of that spectrum...

EPA says it can't pay economic damages from massive mine spill that sent tainted water into Utah 14.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Denver • The Environmental Protection Agency said Friday it will not repay claims totaling more than $1.2 billion for economic damages from a mine waste spill the agency accidentally triggered in Colorado, saying the law prohibits it. The EPA said the claims could be refiled in federal court, or Congress could authorize payments.

India businesses: Currency swap painful, needed 10.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New Delhi • Delivering one of India’s biggest-ever economic upsets, Prime Minister Narendra Modi this week declared the bulk of Indian currency notes no longer held any value and told anyone holding those bills to take them to banks.
