Michigan is one of many states whose water pollution enforcement is lacking,
according to a new report by the U.S. EPA Inspector General.

At the same time, the Washington Post reports on a new U.S. General
Accounting Office report that cautions against a Bush Administration
proposal to reduce EPA enforcement efforts and turn over resources and the
lead role in much environmental enforcement to the states.
