Loren Culp on Environment

 

 


Stop over-regulation and nonsensical permitting

Only the legislature and the Governor can write state law. There are various types of lesser state rules. The main document containing these lesser rules is the Washington Administrative Code (WAC). It's the WAC that causes problems. A lot of the problems caused by the WAC involve how state agencies issue various types of permits. We want to maintain a clean and safe environment. Agencies have written so many sections of WAC related to issuing permits that the process has become nonsensical.

Two state agencies are primarily responsible for management of the environment and natural resources in Washington--the WA Department of Ecology and the WA Department of Natural Resources. Both these agencies have made mistakes and bad policy decisions over the past 20 years. First, the WA Department of Ecology. Ecology has become focused on expanding its "rulemaking" powers. These employees are just bureaucrats pushing paper to push more paper to "require" the agency to push more paper.
