Water is wet. So is the EPA.

Ken Cuccinelli earned a nice victory for Fairfax County and Virginia - the EPA has declined to continue fighting for their "water is pollution" regulation.
The fight mentioned one watershed in one part of the county.
A win there and the EPA would be eyeing areas all across the country.
Multiple governments would have spent tons of money to attempt to meet new EPA rules.
The effect of this ruling and the decision by the EPA to halt their pursuit of this burdensome regulation could save taxpayers in Fairfax County nearly $300 million in unnecessary costs.
Cuccinelli put the EPA back in its place.
Protect the environment, not the bureaucracy.
