U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Hearing on Animas River
Did you know that the Oversight and Government Reform Committee has more mining engineers than the EPA? The EPA employees NOT one mining engineer according to the Committee’s Chairman Congressman Bishop.
Many of the committee members expressed their constituents’ frustration and mistrust of the EPA. California Congressman Doug LaMalfa addressed this with Administrator McCarthy by saying.
LaMalfa: “First of all when I look at how people have to deal their government and their regulations is proportionality — we know how an accident is defined. It is when something happens that is out of their control. They didn’t intend to do. They didn’t want to happen and wished they could head it off somehow. But that said — accidents do happen and we forgive people for mistakes. Yet we see an unforgiveness attitude coming from your agency towards people who haven’t done things intentionally.
