George W. Bush Seizing His Last Chance to Make Us More Vulnerable Again before He Leaves

The Bush Administration has 90 deregulation measures ready to be in place by November 22, which would render them practically impossible for the next administration to overturn:

The new Bush rules would allow employers to bar employees from claiming leave and being paid when they're sick or a family member is sick. They would make unsightly and polluting mountaintop removal in Appalachia easier and more convenient to meet unregulated demands for coal in foreign markets. They would loosen the anti-terrorism regulations on shipping making us more vulnerable to a future terrorist conspiracy.

Bush has planned a total fire sale of what little regulatory shielding we have left. He'll see to it that everything must go before he does.
