US House Chair Henry Waxman Ignores Appeals From Injured Downey Workers-Cover-up Continues (tags)
Henry Waxman, Chair of the House Committee of Energy and Commerce has refused to respond to a letter from the injured Downey Movie and Kaiser workers at the former US military toxic dump site that was privatized as a "Brownfield" site. Injured workers have requested that Waxman push the Energy Department pay for a NIOSH epidemiological study but Waxman is playing hide and seek. He refuses even to meet the workers but has called hearings on steroid use and Toyota. How about having a hearing about injured workers and community members on former military industrial sites which have been privatized. Apparently the developers have a bigger grip on Waxman than his constituents and public who he is supposed to represent.

author: Ross Gelbspan / Mother Jones Jun 11, 2005 12:05 Though global climate change is breaking out all around us, the U.S. news media has remained silent.
