Before the Fall

Fascinating report on business lobby efforts to scramble as quickly as possible to get the government to improve new rules designed to let them pollute more, and screw over workers and consumers more, in advance of what they expect will be a new Democratic administration. They're also beefing up on the number of Democratic lobbyists in their employ. I'm hoping someone's making a list of these new regulatory initiatives to make sure whoever secures the GOP nomination (though it looks increasingly like none of the candidates could possibly win) needs to take ownership of this sort of muck.
