Comment on EPA PLUS DOE COST?

SENT TO Derek KILMER,

Thank you for responding on the EPA.

Your comment
As the EPA moves forward on regulations it is important that they are in the national interest and that there is a greater BENEFIT than COST associated with them.

What is? Was? the intent of congress in providing federal EPA capitalization grants for projects that are consistent with the the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251-1387?

Indeed, was it the intent of congress? for WA State DOE to use federal funds to create an even LARGER controlling WA state administrative GOVERNMENT entity where the DOE administrative COSTS exceed the benefits to the people of WA State?

We want to be able to trust that the rules AND OUR TAX DOLLARS are targeted toward a legitimate problem?

WAC 173-98-010
Purpose.
The purpose of this chapter is to set
forth requirements for the Washington state department of ecology’s
(department) administration of Washington state’s water pollution control revolving fund (revolving fund), and the water pollution control
revolving administration account (administration account) as author-
ized by chapter 90.50A RCW, water pollution control facilities financing.
((This))
The revolving fund is primarily comprised of federal
capitalization grants, state matching moneys, and principal and
interest repayments. It is used to provide loan assistance to public bodies
for statewide, high-priority water quality projects that are
consistent with the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251-1387

The administration account is comprised of an administration
charge applied to the outstanding loan balance on revolving fund
loans. The administration account may be used for the following
:
(1) Administration costs associated with conducting application
processes, managing contracts, collecting loan repayments, managing the revolving fund, providing technical assistance, and meeting state and federal reporting requirements; and
(2) Information and data system costs associated with loan track-
ing and fund management.

At the point where the administration account adequately covers
the program administration costs, the department may no longer use the federal administration allowance. If a federal capitalization grant is awarded after that point, all federal capitalization grant dollars must be used for making loans

This may give you a better understanding of the rubber stamped COST of EPA partial funding of mandates.

In this case? Is the moneys all gone, on DOE administrative costs before it a single penny trickles down to benefit the people?

IS? WAS? THIS? THE INTENT OF CONGRESS?
