The Sierra Club continues to snap at Gov. Matt Blunt’s heels over what the “illegal composition” of Missouri's Clean Water Commission.
The environmental organization has raised concerns that Blunt has appointed too many Republicans to the commission. Although the law says only three members of the same political party can be on the commission, Blunt has appointed four.
Late Monday, Ken Midkiff of the Sierra Club announced in a press release that his organization has filed a formal complaint with the attorney general’s office.
It’s also rumored there is a bill floating around that would make it OK for the commission to have four Republicans. But even if the General Assembly passes the law, it won’t go into effect until much later this year.
So what does the commission do in the meantime?
