"It’s understandable that most House Republicans are skeptical of environmental reforms championed by inside-the-beltway environmentalist lobbying groups.  But not everything supported by environmentalist groups or the Obama Administration is a bad idea.  Catch shares for fisheries (which I wrote about for NRO here) are a good example. … Yet some fishing interests don’t like catch shares, and earlier this month these interests convinced a majority of House Republicans to support an amendment barring further implementation of catch-share programs in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic Coast," – Jonathan Adler, NRO.
