US House votes to allow dumping of coal mining waste into streams | Under the Dome Blog | NewsObserver.com

They really don't care about the average person do they? Even after all the coal ash spills into North Carolina rivers and the WV spill where residents couldn't even drink their local water.

LOL..and people say government is there to "help" us and "regulate" business.

Government is there to protect business interests...both D and R my friends.
Don't kid yourself that one party is any better than the other.

Do you have a link to some actual facts, and not just a worthless blog post that only describes the legislation in question as "a bill?"
