EPA Shuts Out Press, Public on New Orleans

Two editorials hit the nail on the head today about the EPA. The agency is refusing to release some test results or honor Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by journalists. It is therefore impossible to really tell what the quality of the air, soil, and water is, or the long term effects of exposure to the toxic contaminants in that area could be.

Check out the editorials in The Ledger and the Houston Chronicle.
