TPA Sends Coalition Letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Grassley on Loretta Lynch Nomination and Operation Choke Point

Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch

The confirmation process is always an opportunity for knowledge and information to be gathered regarding the views and judgments of a particular nominee for the courts, a federal agency, or other Presidential appointment. Tomorrow the two-day confirmation for Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch will begin and there are many questions that need to be answered in terms of her views on a variety of issues. One issue of interest is where she stands on ‘Operation Choke Point’, the rouge program that DOJ has used to intimidate and shut down legitimate businesses the Obama administration doesn’t like (i.e. gun stores, pay-day lenders). Today, TPA delivered a coalition letter signed by American Commitment, Campaign for Liberty, Center for Individual Freedom, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Frontiers of Freedom, Institute for Liberty, Less Government, Liberty Coalition, and the US Consumer Coalition calling on Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to press for answers from Ms. Lynch on where she stands regarding ‘Operation Choke Point’ and whether or not she will end the program, if she were to be nominated.

In an erratic defense of the cost versus effectiveness of USGBC's LEED green building certification system (see the USA Today investigative series), USGBC's Rick Fedrizzi shouts that this is a "social movement" and "we are right" at their annual Green Build conference in San Francisco. Taxpayers will say "you are wrong" as they learn more about the costs.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system

The Taxpayers Protection Alliance is launching an investigation into the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system. On January 17, 2013, TPA submitted three Freedom of Information Act requests trying to find out what collaboration took place between the General Services Administration and the U.S. Green Building Council when LEED was adopted. While more efficient and sustainable buildings are a laudable goal and can reduce energy consumption and energy costs for taxpayers, achieving that end through de-facto government monopolies is not the right approach.
