citizens have a right to know toxic chemicals are being released
think the citizens of Jacksonville have a right to know what toxic chemicals are being released into their communities. But the City Council recently proposed to limit the information that companies are required to disclose about the hazardous chemicals they release into our environment. By Diverting $90,000 Dollars earn marked for Testing and the reporting requirements of its Toxics Release Inventory program, the City Council would take away Funds for protecting public health and reducing industrial and Marine pollution.
There is no justification for diverting these funds when it comes to protecting the publics health, other than to please corporate polluterssuch as Jaxport, who view public disclosure as a costly nuisance. That's why we must submit as many comments as possible to the Mayor and Governor and city council strongly opposing this dangerous proposal! There exists no state regulation according to the state epa to monitor these air pollution violators.
