Obama Says He Will Block EPA Nominees
WASHINGTON – Sen. Barack Obama said Friday he will block all of President Bush ‘s nominees to key positions in the Environmental Protection Agency until it issues long-overdue regulations limiting people‘s exposure to lead paint from house remodeling. The Illinois Democrat‘s decision has the immediate effect of preventing Susan Bodine, a staff director and lawyer for a House subcommittee, from becoming an assistant administrator in charge of EPA‘s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response.
“I find it unbelievable that the EPA would continue to drag its feet despite the fact that their own analysis found that these rules could prevent 28,000 lead-related illnesses each year,” Obama said.
