E-M:/ Dingell roars back

Rep. John Dingell roars back into the environmental limelight with the following comment and position:
"The Defense Department "has not established the need for these significant exemptions from federal environmental laws and has failed to consider the views of state and local interests," said Rep. John D. Dingell of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over pollution laws. The Pentagon "should concentrate on complying with the law and cleaning up the environment instead of seeking special preference to continue as the nation's greatest polluter."
