Senator Clinton is holding a hearing entitled, "Oversight of the EPA's Environmental Justice Programs." Senator Clinton is Chair of the Subcommittee on Superfund and Environmental Health.
EPA, academicians and activists presented testimony. There will also be some coverage of an environmental justice bill introduced by Congressman Hilda Solis. The African American Environmentalist Association is shopping a bill with teeth. The Solis bill basically codifies Bill Clinton's Executive Order 12898.
