EPA eases rules for industry

In a move protested by lawmakers, residents and even the agency's own scientific advisers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has quadrupled the amount of toxic chemicals that companies can release into the environment without having to report how much they've emitted.

... "(The Toxics Release Inventory) makes all of your chemical usage available to the public and your neighbors and everyone who wants to know, so I'd say its pretty intrusive," said Jeff Homer, chairman of the environment, health and safety committee for the Arizona Association of Industries.

But having someone put poison in your lungs is not intrusive at all. It's funny how corporations get more rights than actual human beings.
