Ariz., 11 other states forced to sue EPA on toxics

Families protest IWU hazardous waste pollution in south Phoenix

PHOENIX -- Arizona has joined 11 other US States in court against the Bush/Cheney Environmental Protection (Pollution?) Agency.

The states want EPA to overturn regulations approved late last year that raised by 400% the amount of toxic pollution that companies can release into the environment without having to tell the public.

More than 40% of Arizona's toxic-releasing companies stopped providing detailed reports on their releases to the public when the new rules took effect earlier this year.

Once again our state is wise fight for public health and open government by challenging the lawless, pro-pollution Bush EPA.
