Tribes' push on air quality has nothing to do with air quality

Dec 30, 2013 - Pam Noriega, Riverton

Editor:

Mr. Breight, well said (letter to the editor Sunday, Dec. 15).

The EPA ruling letting the tribes monitor air quality has nothing to do with air quality, and everything to do with getting their foot in the door.

I can just hear it now. "We have control of the air, so we have control of the land."

The tribes already have tipped their hand by saying our police forces could be combined and taxes for businesses are so much better.

We, as citizens of this community, and not let this happen.

Sign me up for a contribution to the legal fees to fight this in a court of law.
