The Post-Tribune in Merrillville reported over the weekend that environmentalistsÂ complainÂ the state agency in particular has been soft on BP and U.S. Steel in northwest Indiana.
Both IDEM commissioner Tom Easterly and Gov. Mitch Daniels have said they want the agency to do both â?? improve personal incomes and protect the environment.
What do you think? Is it possible to protect our health and the environment while improving job quality â?? especially in an area like theÂ Region that depends so much on heavy industry?
