Regarding the article, “Woodinville glassmaker closing over financial, EPA concerns”: It looks like the Environmental Protection Agency is going to make it impossible for another business to stay in business. Not only that, but it’s taking away the ability for thousands of artists using Spectrum Glass to express themselves; due to possible new environmental regulations. I have used Spectrum Glass for over 25 years, toured their facility, which was an amazing experience. There are already enough environmental, as well as other regulations placed on businesses to choke a horse, making it hard for businesses to exist.
What is wrong with this agency? Are those making these decisions, probably never having owned a business in their lives ever looked at the long-range effects of their decisions?
Statewide, sending a delegation to China to drum up trade, while at the same time possibly creating regulations that shut down a business in this state. What is wrong with this picture?
We all like clean air, but at what cost? We might save the planet, but starve to death in the mean time.
