Sochi victory now over the EPA the environmental protection agency for the state of Virginia the attorney general Ken -- -- it.
Wins -- ruling that said the federal agency overstepped its authority by trying to regulate storm water.
The EPA wanted to label it as a -- lieutenant.
The AG say that the -- save taxpayers 300 million dollars -- that the move.
Was all just to land grab by Uncle Sam what about this Margie Romero democratic pollster president momentum analysis LLC -- you -- -- good morning.
Get -- Brad blatant as a former deputy assistant to president George W.
Bush Brad what's up and happy new year.
Happy new year Virginia wins.
Virginia wins big he can -- and -- Has got a good track record going against the federal government especially in obamacare.
And look when when the state has to has to defend against the federal government constantly.
Infringing on State's rights these are the kind of wasted opportunities not only in time effort and money for states that can -- be recouped.
But it's also rebuke of the Obama administration's policy -- that is.
Continue to press the envelope on states rights vs federal rights you've seen it on immigration you -- on Obama care.
You've seen it on guns and and the bottom line is this bill.
If you don't like it sue me that's the Obama -- I think that's what we did.
Listen just keep it on the EPA for a moment margin -- will address everything -- just ticked off did the EPA overstep here.
I think it's important the EPA wanted to make sure that the local watershed is clean and it's something that polls show is the number one.
Environmental concern 80% of Americans according to -- -- concerned about.
Clean water clean local rivers and creeks and clean air -- water so this is a real concern that a lot of Americans have.
And -- the -- was looking for ways to keep the local watershed clean and that and by reducing -- -- -- That was awaited you have certainly doesn't like there are you able to regulate that you've done to both of you know what won this thing.
It wasn't just the Republican attorney general it was the democratic controlled Fairfax County board of supervisors -- to -- his -- is that you can't do this.
I can understand why local county officials would say you know we're gonna struggle at figuring out how to implement this -- -- comply with it.
I think it's important a look at can PG -- language which was very different from what the local county officials -- using and that language.
That may be -- five and -- primary but if you must be governor of Virginia he's gonna have to use the language of regular voters and regular voters are concerned about clean air clean water.
-- that there of their local watershed.
Believe that argument about the governorship in Virginia for another day but but -- to the larger point here.
This is what happens when political leaders of both sides get together.
That's a little right -- victory.
I live in Fairfax County I don't want the federal government coming in and telling local officials.
Rainwater runoff especially -- -- that's not a federal property this is affecting federal property this affecting local residents it's it's a very issue.
As to what should be done.
With the run off of Rainwater.
On their state and local lands so I'm all we did.
The democratic leadership of Fairfax County is on with the Republican attorney general coming together to tell the federal government to lay off states' rights are Paramount.
What -- constitution doesn't get the federal government the states have the right.
And what did what perhaps is doing now is grabbing just to be clear on this if you -- eliminate the runoff you would have had to confiscate homes right.
Think there's a look at property and for planned -- actually prevent.
Am not donating would have would have kicked him and then who has been over our reimburse those -- -- for Atlanta was taken by the government and that got.
You make originally made -- -- Q what about -- larger points there but yeah -- list of challenges that someone like that you know he's taken on in and parties want.
Well I -- you know eat it it's made him a favor in some quarters it's not the language of swing voters it's not the language that I hear when I can focus scripts around the country I don't hear people use -- language that could shelling uses when he says EPA wants to invade Mexico.
Or the EPA's -- -- evict people from their homes which doesn't happen it's not something that people.
Worry about but it when they do worry about making sure that they have clean air and clean water for their children and their families safe food.
Good schools these are the things people worry about not political grandstanding.
-- taking on colorful political.
Positions simply to grab headlines and and I think it's important to really listen to the voters and how regular voters pocket and I don't hear that language in what I would and that's -- we were a voter living in one of those -- as you would declare victory here.
And you would support this.
Well a look -- as I said I think locally I can understand why local officials and residents say -- lets lets think about what we can do here.
I think ultimately though the big question is of intense and -- and purpose and EP -- -- to make sure we have clean -- clean water and that's it but shared -- And that's not to -- that water high quality impacts of storm water.
Have a great day everybody okay but I hope it doesn't rain on -- weekend Margie thank you Brad thinks he was well you haven't heard foxnews.com.
Is the email also won.
