Re: Letter to Congress Regarding Gas Prices
I think that the governor of Arizona is using this as a diversion so that he does not have to actually work with his state legislature to eliminate the laws that are preventing new refineries from being built. This is simply so he can say that he did something. Actually doing something would, of course, mean challenging the federal government's unquestioned ability to institute intrastate laws through state nullification of the federal laws that are blocking the new refinery from being built in addition to eliminating their own restrictive laws, but I do not think that the State of Arizona would do that, despite having the constitutional authority, and obligation to do that.
