Los Angeles County will spend $2 million to help speed the cleanup of contaminated soil around a battery recycling plant that that violated hazardous waste laws and spewed toxic emissions for decades.
The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously approved the funding request by Supervisor Hilda Solis, who accused the state of moving too slowly to clean up around the now-closed Exide Technologies plant in suburban Vernon.
