Bush’s Record on Texas Air Pollution Exposed

According to a report published by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) using the Environmental Protection Agency’s figures, Texas has the worst air pollution problem in the entire country. Ninety-three smog polluters in Texas are in violation of federal air standards„2.5 times as many violators as the second worst state, Illinois. The EWG has pointed its finger at Texas Governor George W. Bush, saying the violations are not a result of a heavily industrialized state, as Bush claims, but a state government that fails to enforce the laws.
