I wonder which of the Governors who signed the letter would be willing to be the first to put significant political backing towards construction of a new refinery plant in the capitol city of his/her state?

Considering that a business group has been slogging its way through the regulatory process to build Arizona's first and only refinery for about 10 years now (hoped for build date, 2012), maybe the good governor ought first to look inward for a solution.

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.
