Finally, the courts are starting to rule against illegal --- and unconstitutional --- behavior by the Obama Administration and one of those judgments should have anglers and boaters cheering.
First, a federal appeals court ruled that President Obama exceeded his constitutional authority when he made three recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.
Also, the court decided on the same day that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency abused the law with “an unreasonable exercise of agency discretion” in pushing an ethanol agenda that is costing citizens millions of dollars annually, as the inefficient biofuel damages or destroys boat, car, and other internal combustion engines.
Or, as the Wall Street Journal put it:
“Ethanol is one of the only products in history that Congress subsidizes and mandates at the same time. That sounds pretty generous. Yet now a federal court has ruled the Environmental Protection Agency is illegally giving the lobby extra benefits that Congress never intended. That takes some work.”
