Governor Pence's First Day in Office

In an interview with the Indianapolis Star (here), Governor-elect Mike Pence of Indiana says that as soon as he takes office he will impose a moratorium on new regulations (except those that are federally mandated); then he will pray for wisdom.

I wish he would pray for wisdom before deciding to impose a moratorium on regulations. Anyway, it seems likely that a Pence administration will continue the Daniels administration's attacks on environmental regulation in the deeply misguided belief that a trade-off necessarily exists between protecting environmental health and safety and economic prosperity.
