Agency infection

San Luis ObispoMarch 21, 2013 

Once again, the commentary by Dan Morain (March 20), “Hazards of life in a ‘green’ state,” points out the proliferation of local, state and federal agencies that infect so many areas of our lives.

Discussing the potential use of aqueduct water in order to provide residents of Kettleman City decent drinking, washing and cooking water he says the following: “But it is very complicated. At least five (emphasis mine) state and federal agencies have a role in Kettleman City’s water situation, as does Kings County.”

One can only ask, “Why does it take so many agencies to oversee this problem? What possibly can be so complicated that so many agencies and governments need to have fingers in this issue?”

It is important to remember that all of this costs money, lots of money, and we taxpayers foot the bill.
