It’s a rare day when we get some truth from the EPA, FDA, CDC, or any other government agency. …
However, today is one of those days. During a press conference regarding East Palestine, Ohio, an EPA Director told reporters that he would NOT let his children anywhere close to streams in the area.
This contradicts what the agency said earlier, claiming that the water was safe to drink and the air safe to breathe.
New reports claim that the toxic fallout could be headed toward Indiana next. …

Fox News quotes Michael Regan, the EPA Director:
“I’m a father of a 9-year-old. I think we have to all agree that we wish this accident didn’t occur.
The accident occurred and as a result, some of our creeks and our streams have pollution in them.
We’re working very hard to clean up that pollution for the time being while the pollution is present,” Regan told reporters during a visit to East Palestine Tuesday.
“As a father, I would not advise anybody, adult or child, play in the creeks or stream. What we’ve said is the drinking water has been tested.”

The Guardian reports that Senators from Ohio have introduced legislation aimed at curbing another train derailment disaster:
The Railway Safety Act of 2023 is cosponsored by Sherrod Brown and JD Vance, a Democrat and Republican, and others of both parties.
The bill responds to the derailment of a Norfolk Southern train near the Pennsylvania border on 3 February, when 38 cars derailed and more burned.
