The state was set to do this a few day's after the rig fire. They couldn't get the permits from the feds. Now the feds want to look like they are in charge.
More of the "Hope and Change". The current occupant of the Whitehouse want to grow the government. Good luck getting anything done with more layers of bureaucrats.

Isn't this what the state has been asking permission to do for weeks while the idiots in the administration sent lawyers? No they act like they are forcing it to be done. What a bunch of clowns. Unfortunately when people are this stupid we all suffer. This was supposed to be the smartest white house in history. Talk about over educated idiots. As one headline says, part barney fife.
