Clean Water Action is having a press conference at Noon on Wednesday, November 2nd to push the Board of Health to take action on a strengthening and updating of the rules they use to permit toxic emissions. The current rules were written when Reagan was still in the White House and the space shuttle program was brand new. Both of those are gone now but we still use the same rules. We now know much more about the bad effects of toxic emissions and our rules need to reflect that. Many jobs in the “new economy” won’t move here because our air is so bad. We need clean air for the economy that we want. (bump)
