Whittaker fights toxics measure Bill would tighten perchlorate standards
BY JUDY O'ROURKE LA Daily News September 20, 2006
SANTA CLARITA - Attorneys for Whittaker-Bermite - whose 996-acre contaminated site in the heart of town is undergoing cleanup - have urged Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to nix a bill approved by the state Legislature that would tighten standards for perchlorate and other chemicals in drinking water.
The bill's author disagrees with Whittaker's stance and hopes the governor will disregard it.
"It is my understanding that Whittaker is principally responsible for contamination in the Santa Clarita area, and it does not surprise me that a major polluter would put out misinformation in the hopes of persuading Governor Schwarzenegger to veto my bill for clean water," said state Sen. Nell Soto, D-Ontario, who wrote Senate Bill 187.
