Reducing regulations that strangle business

but protect people's health is OK according to the Republican President.

Is that $1000 some workers at a few companies are getting going to pay for the funerals?

EPA Withdraws Air Pollution Policy

WASHINGTON—The Trump administration is withdrawing a decades-old air policy aimed at reining in some of the largest sources of hazardous pollutants like mercury and lead.

The Environmental Protection Agency said late Thursday it is getting rid of requirements that it forever keep sites classified as “major sources” of hazardous air pollution once they meet that classification.
There is more to the story but the WSJ is now a pay site and that's all that peeks above its paywall.

You don't think a facility should be cleaned up and brought into compliance but instead condemned for eternity? That seems silly.

The question becomes, WHO PAYS TO CLEAN IT UP ??? Why should the government foot the bill for CORPORATE AMERICA'S mess ?? If the company won't or can't pay for the clean up, what else do you do with the site ??

Sell it off to some developer to build houses on the polluted land ?? Just fuck whoever buys those houses when they start dying !!
