The article offers the author's opinion on the costs of environmental regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It states that the agency received much criticism for costly regulations that does not only damage their bottom lines but also resulted in less monetary assets which can be used for investment in human sources in the future. It discusses the effort of EPA to regulate emissions that cross state borders which the agency calls the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR).
