65. And you might want to educate yourself about how some Utah counties

aren't even in compliance with federal regulations.

"On Tuesday, the Cache County Council signaled that it will stop fighting state and federal regulators and adopt an emissions testing program for vehicles this year.

Certain they had a better solution for their community with a proposed sticker program, they balked when the EPA and state air-quality officials insisted on the sort of emissions program already used on the Wasatch Front to bring winter smog episodes into compliance with federal law by the end of next year.

"We really thought our program would be better than theirs," said County Executive M. Lynn Lemon, noting that a threatened $50,000-a-day fine was a factor. "We’re going to move forward."

State air-quality scientists have been working on broader plans to reduce winter smog, but they are searching for even more pollution-cutting ideas because plans for Salt Lake and Utah counties still cannot meet federal standards."

I particularly like the first line about how the Cache County Council said IT WOULD STOP FIGHTING STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS AND ADOPT AND EMISSIONS TESTING PROGRAM FOR VEHICLES THIS YEAR.

Once again, it takes a disaster to finally get some action. You say no regulation can stop this. I say bullshit. How about we try it and find out?
