WASHINGTON — A Michigan man has been sentenced to 12 months’ probation, a $2,000 fine and a $100 special assessment after pleading guilty to conspiracy to violate the Clean Air Act in 2023.

According to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan, Dustin Rhine received his sentence on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

This is technically not a “law.” United States Supreme Court has ruled as of last year, the EPA can NOT make any laws without going through Congress for approval. They got in trouble already for making laws for the coal miners. EPA can go piss off.
