Sacramento Responds To Golden Wasteland Report/NBC Expose

Somebody’s listening. We issued Golden Wasteland this morning, a harsh look at the Department of Toxic Substances Control and how it’s falling down on its job of protecting Californians and the environment from toxic harm. NBC took a deep look at the Department last night as well — and its director refused to answer direct questions. Well now Sacramento has some of its own.

Senator DeLeon (D-Los Angeles) just wrote DTSC Director Debbie Raphael asking for some answers about its lack of enforcement and its mismanagement of hazard waste regulation. He’s calling for a Senate investigation.
