    Hopefully the state can figure out how to re-coup some of the lost revenue. The State employee responsible for allowing the permita has now moved on to another govt job with at the local level so hard to punish her.

    I agree with LLaird about politicians, not just repubs being for sale but I tink it was a different pol that was responsible for the FERTERLIZER bill. That was a different GREEDEE POLITIAN, which I think is the same as greedy politician
