Massachusetts seeking greater control over environmental oversight
from The Boston Globe
Massachusetts state environmental officials filed legislation April 29 to assume greater authority over the amount of pollution allowed in the state's waterways, a move environmental advocates fear could weaken regulatory oversight and harm water quality. The bill is the first step in a process that could ultimately require the state to spend millions of dollars to monitor water quality and enforce compliance, tasks now performed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
