Chemical spill hearings focus on possible legislation
from The Wall Street Journal
In two Congressional hearings, federal lawmakers hashed out possible federal legislation responding to regulatory and information gaps that many said were laid bare after the chemical Crude MCHM spilled in West Virginia and sullied the water supply for more than 300,000 people. The Senate hearing discussed a bill that would require states to do an inventory of chemicals stored upriver from a water supply and inspect above-ground storage tanks near water facilities ever three years and other storage tanks every five years.
