HOOD FOLLOWS HURST’S LEAD ON EPA
It takes an election to get Hood to do his job
In May, Republican Attorney General Mike Hurst called on Jim Hood to respond to the EPA’s “water of the United States” ruling which would allow for federal bureaucratic overreach into the states and onto private property. Mississippi has now joined a lawsuit with other states against the EPA on this issue.
“It’s sad that it takes an election year campaign to wake up our part-time Attorney General and get him to do the right thing. He has been sitting idly by, in his words running the Attorney General’s office from an iPad in Houston, while the federal government continues to encroach on the rights of Mississippians and our state. As Attorney General, I will fight for Mississippi all the time, not just a few months before an election every four years,” said Hurst.
