Likely EPA pick hit for Jersey record. Politico
“In a report released this summer, the EPA’s inspector general slammed New Jersey’s failure to clean up several toxic waste sites in a timely manner, and accused the state’s environmental agency of going easy on polluters and failing to seek necessary support from the EPA. The report said the department bore at least partial responsibility for ‘not implement[ing] agreements on clean-up milestones, Agency responsibilities, and enforcement actions.’ ”
On the other hand, the Sierra Club places the blame for the bad record in New Jersey on Governor Jon Corizone.
