Greenwire via The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Green groups are cheering a proposed rule released by the U.S. EPA that they hope will close a dangerous hazardous waste recycling loophole created in the waning days of the George W. Bush administration. But environmental justice advocates are especially excited about the proposal because of the unprecedented level of attention it gives to understanding the health impacts the 2008 rule was having on low income and minority communities. Environmental justice experts say the proposal has set a new standard for how environmental justice issues can be factored into the rulemaking process. More

J. J. Keller & Associates    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
