Uhhh, they paid attorneys to have the legislation written.

What the Kochs pay the politicians to pretend they thought up the legislation themselves and pass it is a different number.

And this is what you get..



House Republicans who have received hefty campaign contributions from coal and electric power companies approved coal legislation supported by the industry and super-lobby group the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

McKinley's bill would please members of ALEC, the super-lobby group funded by Peabody Coal, Koch Industries, and others that promotes conservative agendas by supplying state legislators with model bills and resolutions. Last week, the Center for Media and Democracy released 800 pieces of ALEC model legislation, including a resolution opposing any federal regulation of coal ash waste.

You shouldn't want plutocrats from either side deciding government policy. Both sides are can be guilty, the right are just a little more brazen

Why are you responding to me? What does your post have to do with my comment about Bachman's apparent easily-bought-offness'?

So they are neutralizing the laws bought and paid for by environmentalists? Sounds like the meter is now reset to zero. Now all we have to do is fund true research and gather real data not polluted by special interests.
