The unchecked power of the EPA

Apparently the federal Environmental Protection Agency believes it has the power to override Congress and redraw state lines.

The Powell (Wyoming) Tribune notes:
Late last year, the EPA ruled that the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho Tribes of the Wind River Indian Reservation have “state status” and can perform air quality monitoring. The tribes also may offer input on projects within 50 miles of the reservation’s borders. 
This ruling placed Riverton, Kinnear and Pavillion and adjoining areas within the reservation’s boundaries.
Other media point out that the EPA has effectively taken the position it has the power to reverse law and legal precedent in place for more than a hundred years.

Do you dare deny that federal bureaucracy is out of control?
