Attorney General Exempts State Agencies From Municipal Storm Water Regulations

Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker, who is running for Governor in 2010, issued an opinion that state agencies – particularly the Department of Transportation – do not have to comply with city and county storm water runn-off regulations.

Here is a copy of the Attorney General’s opinion.

The opinion troubles environmentalists and led the Athens Banner-Herald to call for some limits on the state.

    Its a slippery slope. I think the opinion is contrary to where the Georgia Supreme Court is on this fine point of the law, but it will be interesting to see where this goes. Thanks for posting it to your blog.
