Sen. Dianne Feinstein is calling on the federal government to fund independent research into the health effects of the rocket-fuel chemical perchlorate, which has contaminated many Inland drinking-water supplies.

Feinstein, a Democrat, added a provision this week to a federal budget bill, instructing an environmental health agency to support perchlorate research. Most studies have been done by the perchlorate industry.

The provision doesn't guarantee funding but is expected to help set research priorities, a Feinstein aide said Friday.
