Fox in the Henhouse, Take 27

In another non-shocker move from the White House, the woman who could be the next director of Regulatory Affairs has spent her career dismantling public safety regulations. Surely there can't be too many supply-side, laissez faire corporatists left to tap for jobs in this administration. But the White House sure has a knack for sniffing them out.

The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs stands above the EPA, and the potential chief, Susan Dudley, has a history of opposing cleanliness-- clean air, clean water, clean energy-- and auto safety. In short, if it means promoting public health and safety but costs corporations any money, it's eeeeevvvviillllll.

Think Progress has the details, and plenty of links.
