Candy Copeland's insight:
How can the EPA do anything, especially in view of the fact that our current Congress is basically handcuffing them making it nearly impossible for them to do their job of protecting the Citizens of the US from harmful chemicals and substances. They get the lowest funding amount, their staff numbers have been taken back to what they were in 1998! Smacks of political favoring of the big chemical companies and I say WE THE CITIZENS ARE MORE IMPORTANT. You'd think they don't have family that will have to live here and deal with the decisions they're making now. That fast buck, or political favor is more important right now.
