Joe Barton: not "trying to gut the Clean Air Act"

Here's the quote of the day from Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee: "I'm not trying to abolish standards or gut the Clean Air Act." (from a piece in today's New York Times)

Barton's committee last week approved energy legislation, including a provision that would allow states to delay local pollution cleanup by claiming it faces pollution blowing in from other areas.

The usual dirty-air gang -- power companies, manufacturers, etc. -- are behind this bad idea.
