    So going off the calendar, if Congress doesn't overturn this, this will be in the wild (pun intended) for 10 days until Obama takes office.

    Do as much damage on the way out as you can, eh? :rolleyes:

    This is how Bush wants to leave office? Fine, let him. It's fitting end to a horrible presidency.

    Anyone want to bet that an unusually high number of plans normally subject to these regulations will be submitted during these 10 days?

    Sure they will. But how are they going to get approved that fast?

    Well, typically the way it works is that submitted projects are evaluated based on the rules in place on the day of their submittal for review.

    It's really not fair to have a project submitted for review, and then have the rules under which it is reviewed changed during the review process.

    For instance, I'm working on a school modernization project right now that was submitted in 2006, and is therefore under the 2006 building code. The fact that the code has since been changed does not affect this project.

    So I'm thinking there are going to be a lot of people submitting during those 10 days, and that's what Bush is after here. One more sloppy wet kiss to his corporate buddies.

    Is this the conduct I should expect from fellow environmentalists?
