On Thursday, the House Committee on Natural Resources released a damning report on the EPA and its handling of the Gold King Mine disaster last August. The report detailed how the EPA and the Department of the Interior were inaccurate and misleading in their conflicting accounts of the wastewater spill, which the EPA said last week released 880,000 pounds of toxic metals.
These are the Federal entities that think they know how to regulate our public lands and our pollutants and pseudo-pollutants.
Chairman Rob Bishop (R, UT):
This report peels back one more layer in what many increasingly view as a pattern of deception on the part of EPA and DOI.
