    Anyone have any clue why the gov't was opposed to volunteer efforts?

    Well, at least some people wouldn't take no for an answer.

    Just bureaucracy. The "Good Sammaritan" would need to pay the appropriate fees and obtain the appropriate licenses in order to operate. Then he would have to meet all Federal regulatory guidelines for hiring practices and whatever BS codes they have in place for the specific occupation, if the Feds are involved.

    Plus, Malone hits the nail on the head ..... the local good ol' boys aren't going to allow someone to come in and take something they can inflate the prices on away from them.

    Interesting and revealing. I'm betting Karl Malone told it like it was.
