The Environmental Protection Agency today announced that they would be enacting tougher smog restrictions nationwide, which are expected to cost industries tens of billions of dollars to comply with. You may recall that the EPA tried to do this under Dubya, but was thwarted because of his quest to destroy the planet. The new rules are not likely to affect California, which has been at the forefront of de-smogging protections for a while. But as ABC News reports, counties in Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Minnesota are all likely to feel the pain of compliance.
