3. The Fifth Circuit noted in Corrosion Proof Fittings vs EPA[Corrosion Proof Fittings v EPA, 947 F.2d at 1201 n.23 – see https://law.resource.org/pub/us/case/reporter/F2/947/947.F2d.1201.89-4596.html (Search for the term “toothpicks” or look for paragraph 23 to read this section of the court’s opinion)that EPA regularly rejects, as unjustified, regulations that would save more lives at less cost.
