The reason this story grabbed me is a quote in the version I read from Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine, sponsor of the resolution along with Sen Leahy of
Vermont. She states, "Every freshwater river, lake, and stream in my state is subject to a mercury advisory warning pregnant women and young children
to limit consumption of fish caught in these waters."
This effort may well be too little, too late, but we have to start somewhere! I like that the Senate is taking a bi-partisan look at the EPA
guidelines and letting their will be known in the form of a floor vote.
