Bush Cuts Superfund

Washington, D.C. — The New York Times has reported that through a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) report, the Bush administration has cut the funds necessary to clean up 33 toxic waste sites in 18 states under the Superfund program.

The cuts likely will stop cleanup work at some of the more polluted sites in the country, according to the report.
