EPA, Dow Chemical resuming dioxin talks
Monday, June 29,

Federal officials are
resuming negotiations with Dow Chemical Co. over cleanup of dioxin pollution
near the company's Midland plant.
The Environmental Protection Agency
said Monday it has notified Dow that an offer from the company earlier this year
is good enough for talks to continue. Talks stopped in March, shortly after Lisa
Jackson became EPA chief.
Discussions are to resume in mid-July and
continue at least until Aug. 25. They could last longer if there's progress.
Officials say they hope talks pave the way for a comprehensive cleanup
of a 50-mile-long watershed including portions of the Tittabawassee and Saginaw
Rivers, as well as Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay.
contaminated the area for much of the 20th century.
Dow Chemical dealing with the EPA is 'small potatoes ' compared to what the current government is doing to our country!!!
It does not appear to be a democracy anymore... but a dictatorship by the 'academic elite.'
God bless the USA...
