This Washington Times op-ed by Representatives Peter King and Charlie Dent is a must read.

King and Dent begin their argument by citing the massive amount of litigation triggered by the Endangered Species Act, a subject I wrote about this past weekend.

Congress cannot continue to license plaintiffs’ lawyers to cripple American business with lawsuits or to burden the government with endless complaints which must be answered and which drain the agencies of energy and time. This four-decade expansion of the opportunity to sue has been a very good thing for lawyers, including, full disclosure, my partners and me on the defense side of the table, but the cost is staggering.
