DEC resents VCE's suggestions that the state dropped the ball
DEC resents criticism
"Kessler at the DEC resents the suggestion by neighbors and Vermonters for a Clean Environment — last month the environmental group named ABC Metals one of ANR’s 10 worst regulatory failures — that the state dropped the ball on its enforcement measures." Junkyard Dog, Seven Days Vermont.
Readers of VCE's report will note that most of its content about ABC Metals (pages 30 - 33) was based on an editorial from last year's Burlington Free Press that blasted state and local officials, including ANR, for its failures.
ANR needs to stop pointing fingers and start solving problems. ABC Metals is a good place to start.
