For example in Georgia, Governor Joe Frank Harris and his Commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources, Leonard Ledbetter, pushed very hard to get a commercial hazardous waste incinerator located in Taylor County.
In June of this year, a committee of the Georgia Hazardous Waste Management Authority found that the siting of a facility in Taylor County was based on politics rather than on environmental considerations and that the public in Taylor county had been intimidated and prevented from participating in the process.
Another example was the federal EPA issuing a permit for a commercial hazardous waste incinerator in East Liverpool, Ohio, in an already heavily polluted area surrounded by homes and schools and subject to frequent thermal inversions.
