Still fracking on fault-lines or injecting waste water...meanwhile the Franchise tax Board "God" in Cali...is chasing and hounding the Poor people for Money they don't have and yet they call them criminals?...who is the Criminal Really????? For as progressive as the state claims to be its mindset is still 100 years old...when the Governor needs to be PUSHED into common sense when it comes to fracking, he decides to see if his Ranch has mineral deposits?...and tel me again where the money for the high speed rail is coming from???? I'm sorry but did My mindful attention to detail Baffle you Jerry?...

Congress Set to Pass New Regulations on Environmental Toxins
Congress is set to pass the first new regulations on toxic chemicals in 40 years. The law means that some 64,000 chemicals, many of them ingredients in household products, will be tested for the first time. The new federal regulations could also override stronger state laws, which has led some environmental groups to oppose the new legislation. We'll discuss the proposal and what it could mean for California.
