The newly appointed leader of a House subcommittee that controls the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget, Representative Mike Simpson, Republican of Idaho, says he intends to slash the agency’s funding. “The E.P.A. is the scariest agency in the federal government, an agency run amok,” Mr. Simpson said in a statement on Friday. “Its bloated budget has allowed it to drastically expand its regulatory authority in a way that is hurting our economy and pushing an unwanted government further into the lives of Idahoans.”
