E-M:/ If you think things are bad here....

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>

If you think things are bad here in Michigan, look
to the south, Michigan....to Ohio...for examples of
really how bad things really can get.   Lax Ohio air pollution
regulation is the best argument for a strong national
clean air statute that I can possibly think of.

Apparently Ohio's atmosphere of environmental
deregulation is what Michigan Republicans are
aspiring to...

Ohio EPA has proposed rules that would allow
air pollution sources to discharge up to 260 lbs of
mercury and 87 lbs of PCBs per year and not be subject to a state
air pollution permit or best available technology rules.

The state is also planning on deregulating emissions
of numerous airborne toxicants and carcinogens.

The draft Ohio EPA permit exemption rules can be found

The public notice can be found here:

The deadline for comment has been extended to the close of business
today at Ohio EPA.

Too bad the presidential election is going to depend on what
those Buckeyes do down there....
