EPA committed to protecting water
To the Editor: When Congress passed the Clean Water Act in 1972, it didn't just defend the mighty Mississippi or the Great Lakes; it also protected smaller streams and wetlands from pollution. The law recognized that to have healthy communities downstream, we need healthy headwaters...

LETTER: Bad business to believe EPA lies about ethanol
To the Editor: A practice called “inversion” is used by international oil corporations and others to avoid paying taxes in the United States. They renounce U.S. citizenship to seek out the lowest bidder tax state to call their country. The president calls them unpatriotic....
