WASHINGTON, D.C. — A Michigan congressional delegation has won approval for a measure that would allow states to regulate the shipment of international waste into their regions.
The effort is being headed by Republican Mike Rogers and Democrat John Dingell, and could spell bad news for trash haulers. The bill would require the Environmental Protection Agency to enforce a 1992 treaty calling for Canadian shippers to notify the U.S. of trash shipments.
There’s concern the U.S. may simply decline trash shipments if the bill is passed.
