According to the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution, the EPA is an illegal agency which creates their own laws, penalties, and enforces them and thus should not be acknowledged by the states. It's congresses job to create laws, and is not suppose to delegate their jobs down to sub agencies.

States, tell the EPA to go *#%( off!
